Just Like Watergate

So, the first shoe drops and Scooter Libby resigns.  Yawn.  This was to be expected.   Much more important is the fact that Fitzgerald is continuing and expanding the investigation into other areas.

Watergate started just like this, with small indictments, minor felonies, a cover up.  As the investigation continued and moved deeper, ever more disturbing activities were uncovered.  Like pulling on a loose thread from a sweater, eventually the whole thing unravels and falls apart.  The involvement of Cheney's people in the dissemination of the forged Niger documents will be key, I'm sure.  As will the self-preservation instincts of those in the CIA and State Department.

Much more fun to come!
