The Whip #10: Plame Game
We need to fill out another slow news day. Sigh. Apparently Attorney General Alberto Gonzales (gasp!) was informed of the Plame investigation (gasp!) by the Justice Department (gasp!) and waited twelve hours before notifying the White House Staff (gasp!) after asking Justice if he needed to keep it confidential or not (gasp!). Gonzales did however inform White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card immediately (gasp! Heat up the tar! Get the feathers ready!). Obviously Gonzales is guilty of obstruction of agenda! Off with his head!
