Matt Yglesius observes:
Watching CNN it’s obvious that the conservative strategy on these indictments is the same old playbook: Slime and defend. Except they can’t slime Patrick Fitzgerald, so instead they’re going to attack … Joe Wilson. But why? Wilson has literally nothing to do with the allegations being made here. Scooter Libby said some things under oath to the grand jury. Some of those things were false. Those are crimes.
Paul Begala completes the thought:
“So now it looks like there are going to go after Joe Wilson, which is what got them in trouble in the first place.”
