Awww, schadenfreude needs a good icon with it! :)

Thanks for that. Made my day. I'm not sure I said hello, btw, I think I saw your posts chez bcholmes, perhaps? In any case, I know I added you, and I saw you'd added me, but couldn't remember saying hi.

So, umm, hi then. ;) I'm Cait. This looks a lot like me.

It's like Christmastime for the Democrats!

I'll bet you one beer, should I see you again, that nothing of political or criminal consequence comes from this.

The GOP won't do anything against their boy, Rove will hire the best attorneys money can buy should anyone take him to court (which I find unlikely), and FoxNews will either bury the story or excuse him for it. That's my prediction.

I fear you're right. But it may help the Dems regain a few seats in 2006.

I hope you're right.

But I don't know. O'Conner's resignation fills me with dread. If Bush nominates a reasonable (to mainstream Dems) candidate, then my fear is moot, but I think that's about as likely as aliens coming down and telling the world to go follow what Adam Wick (nmc, me) thinks is a good plan.

So, if the Dems filibuster, suddenly they're unreasonable obstructionists out of touch with the common man, and they lose. If the Dems don't filibuster, their liberal base is going to throw a fit and leave, and they lose. I can hope that this Rove thing will break hard everywhere and there'll be a national backlash that gets people on the Dems side, but I'm not really expecting it. Particularly since I suspect that the phrase "liberal conspiracy" is going to start floating around a bit, if it's not already out there, and the national news media is too cowardly to take a stand on pretty much anything of substance.
