I see that while I was at an office birthday luncheon I missed some big news. Given the rampant criminality of this administration, a mere perjury/obstruction conviction of Cheney's trusted henchman is small consolation.
It feels good, however. And bigger fish may yet fall.
Now the hysterical and breathless condemnation of this verdict by the Beltway punditocracy shall commence. Spinning and likely pardoning will follow. But Patrick Fitzgerald said when he originally announced these charges that he couldn't charge the real crime because of an impenetrable web of dissembling spun by Scooter and Rove and their ilk, so disregard the hot air about this being a non-crime cover-up. You'll hear a lot of that malarky.
