I have felt for some time that Harriet was not the real nominee, but even nuttier than that is the timing. Bush’s “reluctant acceptance” of her withdrawal comes just before this:
“BREAKING NEWS: Special prosecutor is focusing on whether presidential adviser Karl Rove committed perjury in CIA leak probe, sources tell CNN.”
So the nominee was a plant. She gets ripped by the Neocons, ripped by the libs, and pulled just before the indictments come down. Hmmm.
Well, the wind will not be taken out of the Plamegate story. But the nominee that will be up to bat next you can bet will have sparkling credentials and will be a hard hitting conservative. Bet on that.
Up next: TERROR ALERT!
The LA Times has an article about how the administration might try to deflect what Fitzgerald offers up.
