Speaking of Rove....Remember Reid?

Washington Times: Reid cites FBI file on judicial pick

Have we forgotten? this was only back in May?

"Senate 29, Section 5: "Any Senator, officer, or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate, including the business and proceedings of the committees, subcommittees, and offices of the Senate, shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body; and if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt."

Pennywit Blog has this take on the whole affair:

"So here’s an idea. A trade. A political compromise, for which the Senators are so rightly notorious. In exchange for the resignation of Karl Rove from the White House staff (no doubt to go into private practice making 10 times the money doing exactly the same thing as he is now – after all, his prime client, President Bush, is not running for re-election anyway), Harry Reid will also resign his Senate seat. Now, admittedly Rove is a lot more valuable to the GOP than Reid will ever be to the Democratic party. But the misuse of classified information for partisan purposes is a serious matter. Just ask the pols and pundits on the left who are screaming for Rove's scalp... for doing nothing different than what Reid did earlier. When Harry Reid sets such a fine example by resigning his Senate seat over his own misuse of classified information, the White House will have no choice but to let Rove go as well. What could possibly be more fair? Besides, this solution not only shows just how truly equitable and magnanimous Republicans really are, but it also affords those on the left the opportunity to lead by example, something not very easily accomplished when you're continually losing one election after another."

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
