Life without you
From WaPo: The White House begins to ponder a world without Turd Blossom, as Karl Rove and Scooter Libby await probable indictment. Says the NYT Friday:
Among the charges that Mr. Fitzgerald is considering are perjury, obstruction of justice and false statement - counts that suggest the prosecutor may believe the evidence presented in a 22-month grand jury inquiry shows that the two White House aides sought to cover up their actions, the lawyers said.

Mr. Rove and Mr. Libby have been advised that they may be in serious legal jeopardy, the lawyers said, but only this week has Mr. Fitzgerald begun to narrow the possible charges. The prosecutor has said he will not make up his mind about any charges until next week, government officials say.
At least now they know to smile for their mug shots... Meanwhile, the writer formerly known as "Fine" opines on poetic justice, hardball tactics and a White House spinning out of control...

Reuters speculates on the charges: it's the cover-up, stupid. And Tim Russert denies he was Libby's source (note to Scooter -- you talked to Lil' Russ after you talked to Judy...) says Thursday's barn burner:

In light of all the disclosures, "it's going to be as difficult for the defense to prove the theory that the White House got the information from reporters as it is for Fitzgerald to prove that the White House leaked the information about Wilson's wife," said Washington-based white-collar defense attorney James D. Wareham.
People are asking: just who was Rove's second source (he's apparently already named Libby...) And don't even bother blaming Tim Russert ...
