  •  Plame angle (4.00)
    is the best.  It involves potentially illegal conduct and national security.
    •  I agree it's critically important (4.00)
      SusanG's stalwart research and the contributions of her volunteer coordinators will make the difference as this continues to progress. Here's hoping that the strength of the questions raised will mean that new subpoenas will be flying towards these buffoons.
    •  Just had a total brain-fart over this (4.00)
      What do the following have in common: Abu G and "female mud wrestling", and Gannon's "Military Men 2 Men" Website?

      Both use sex to cover up a potential scandal, and discredit the actual individuals who are carrying out the administration's policies.  They also divert the public and "reframe" the issue away from what is really going on - i.e., in Abu G torture and in Gannongate propaganda - and have them focus on...SEX, because given the choice folks will talk about sex all the time.  The media will follow the sex story because it's, well, sexier.  And, the sex thing actually serves to distance the individuals from the administration in your average person's mind because Bush's rhetoric is so religious right that subconsciously his base and moderates will divorce him from any involvement with these "sexual deviants".

      OMG - I just got it.  Wow.  The sex thing is a total smoke screen.  Find the link between Gannon and the administration and that's the story.

      •  Gee, I'm getting way too many Nixon flashbacks... (4.00)
        ...in this administration.

        Bob Woodward: The story is dry. All we've got are pieces. We can't seem to figure out what the puzzle is supposed to look like. John Mitchell resigns as the head of CREEP, and says that he wants to spend more time with his family. I mean, it sounds like bullshit, we don't exactly believe that...
        Deep Throat: No, heh, but it's touching. Forget the myths the media's created about the White House. The truth is, these are not very bright guys, and things got out of hand.
        Bob Woodward: Hunt's come in from the cold. Supposedly he's got a laywer with $25,000 in a brown paper bag.
        Deep Throat: Follow the money.
        Bob Woodward: What do you mean? Where?
        Deep Throat: Oh, I can't tell you that.
        Bob Woodward: But you could tell me that.
        Deep Throat: No, I have to do this my way. You tell me what you know, and I'll confirm. I'll keep you in the right direction if I can, but that's all. Just... follow the money.

      •  I'll be damned Granny (none)
        I think you may be on to something here.
    •  Yep........ (none)
      Absolutely. This is what will eventually make this story grow legs. Let's just hope that somewhere out there, there is a mainstream media outlet willing to go the extra mile to make sure these legs walk.......all the way into a huge investigation that smears chimpy's image once and for all.
      Something needs to smear chimpy's holier-than-thou image......God knows being a stupid alcoholic cocaine addict didn't smear him.....maybe this will. Eventually
