When the Plame-gate indictments come down, what will be the diversion story from the White House?
I wonder what story the White House will "break" to the media on the day Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald issues indictments--indictments that may include Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and others such as possibly John Bolton?
And will it matter if Fitzgerald identifies the Terrible President and Mr. Other Priorities as unindicted co-conspirators?
Some ideas kicking around in my noggin:
Some Al-Queda "senior official" is captured. Or maybe some Iraqi insurgent "leader".
Harriet Miers withdraws her nomination and Edith Jones or Edith Clement is nominmated in her stead. Prissy Owens? Too Texan? Janice Brown? Only if the Terrible President is an unindicted co-conspirator and needs the screaming banshees from Rush to Michael Savage to Sean Hannity back on his side.
A new treaty with North Korea.
Announcement of significant troop reductions from Iraq, perhaps.
Feel free to think of more.
Maybe...nothing. But this administration has shown itself very adept at planning and knowing when to leak and not leak important announcements, good and bad.
