I find it a bit odd that George W. is getting what seems to be a free pass in the media on Plamegate.
Doesn't any reporter think it might be possible that Bush not only knew, but encouraged the outing of Valerie Plame?
Typical of coverage is today's porridge from the AP on Karl Rove's allegedly directly telling both Bush and Scott McLellan that he was not responsible for blowing Plame's cover.
But think about it, this is at a time when Bush and his posse felt that they could pretty much do anything they wanted. His approval rating was still relatively high and Bush had to have been aware of other dirty tricks perpetuated in his name. So why would something of this magnitutde not be discussed with Bush, or Cheney for that matter.
I, for one, would be surprised if Dubya wasn't in the loop. However, I cannot imagine one of the boys ratting him out either?
So let's see who gets sacrificed at the altar, to become a future pardon down the road.
