Frog Marching

Many of us have been waiting to see Karl Rove frog-marched out of The White House in handcuffs. We'd take anyone, really, but Karl Rove would be a double-plus good one to nab. According to TPM, Rove has already admitted to criminal wrongdoing because either he thought he was a lawyer himself, or he got some bad legal advice. I'm going with the former because I believe his ego could allow him to do this.

On another note, I like the idea that a top blogger may be able to feed reporters good questions to ask the Administration. It may never actually happen, but at least I like to think that the possibility exists. TPM is really good at this stuff - usually just being very subtle about it - because no one likes to be told what to do, especially a spoiled brat of a White House correspondent. Today, however, he's a little more explicit:

(A Note to White House gaggleers: This is a spoon feed, folks. Just last week the White House argued that the separation-of-powers bar on testimony applied to questions of policy not appearances tied to scandal or congressional investigations into wrongdoing. This clearly falls right into that category. It's wrapped in a bow. Why not ask?)

(Italics not mine).

A 'gaggleer' is a White House correspondent. We really need a dictionary of liberal blog terms...
