David Shuster was awesome on Countdown last night. He succinctly summed up the White House view of the latest Libby filings in Plamegate as a "catastrophe." This was followed by some Newsweek cat who said the latest trailer revelations demonstrate conclusively that the Administration was "cherry-picking" intelligence all along.
I believe that's the first time I've heard a forceful statement along those lines anywhere in the media by a reporter.
When the President is either an easily-manipulated buffoon or a lying asshole, there's certainly little silver lining for Rove and Co. The transcript will hopefully be up soon.
