Plame Game

It seems that we will know soon, quite soon, how big a deal all of this is. It still could amount to nothing at all, or it could be the equivalent of a nuke lobbed into official Washington. If it's the latter it'll be quite fascinating. It is, after all, a story which official Washington, which includes the Cohens and the Tweeties and the Russerts and the Mitchells of the world, was at least until recently largely dismissive of and one which they did their best to run from. Some of this is due to the lack of leaks from Fitzgerald, but not all of it. If it does hit big much of the American public will be rather clueless about where it all came from.
