Kos Patch Not Sincere Enough; Great Pumpkin Doesn't Indict Rove

Tempest, meet teapot.

Despite the fervent hopes and dreams of many on the left, after two years of investigation, Patrick Fitzgerald made no charges under the referral of "outing" a covert CIA agent. Instead he brought cover-up charges only against Scooter Libby. In a move reminiscent of the Martha Stewart case, Libby was not charged with the alleged crime for which he was investigated, but rather for obstructing the investigation. This is a pale imitation of what the left had longed to see come from this investigation.

Some labeled it "Fitzmas" as they hoped for indictments against numerous White House officials, most especially Karl Rove. Instead of Christmas, I'm reminded more of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." Linus spends the whole night waiting in a pumpkin patch rather than enjoying the trick-or-treating and the Halloween party. He believes that if he is sincere enough, the Great Pumpkin will appear. After spending the night waiting with him in vain, Sally turns on Linus in anger and disgust. I think we're going to see that same anger directed at Fitzgerald by those on the left who had placed so much hope in him to deliver the political death-knell for Karl Rove.


Linus: "You've heard about fury in a woman scorned, haven't you?"
Charlie Brown: "Yes, I guess I have."
Linus: "Well, that's nothing compared to the fury of a (Kossack) who has been cheated out of (a Rove indictment)."
