Hey, It Was Rove!

So, to recap.

A "Senior Administration Official" leaks to the several members of the press that Valerie Plame is a covert CIA official.

The President says he will fire whoever it is.

It turns out to be, whoa, big surprise here, Karl Rove. Either Rove failed to tell the President that he was the leaker, which for some people would be great lapse in judgment (both the leaking and the failure to tell the boss), or he told Bush and ole George just blew it off. Bush has been revealed (again) as either an emasculated chump or a liar.

When asked if that means Rove will be fired, Scott McClellan says, "Any individual who works here at the White House has the president's confidence. They wouldn't be working here if they didn't have the president's confidence."

That's really going to be the end of it, you know. The press will whine for a couple of weeks and the Democrats will fulmininate, but nothing else will happen. There will be no Congressional investigations, there will be no convictions.

Did any of you really think this would turn out any other way?
