Abramoff talks, Libby walks?

Everybody is talking about how the forthcoming Vanity Fair article will feature some large-caliber ratting from Jack Abramoff. Republican's have been trying to pretend they don't know Jack. Jack, who seems to be driven largely by a need to be respected and taken seriously, doesn't seem to like that strategy so much. His revenge will apparently out a bunch of Congressional and other bigwigs who dared to deny him.

The first-order effect will be to raise the temperature in the stewpots in a bunch of Republicans now find themselves.

And I suspect that the second-order effect will be to strength the hand of anyone else in the prosecutorial cross-hairs -- like Scooter, for example. Scooter may not know the location of as many bodies as Abramoff does, but what he does know is probably enough to sink Cheney and Rove, and possibly even Bush. So after the dust clears from the Abramoff explosion, my guess is you will start to see some serious steps taken to protect Scooter in order to prevent him from doing the same.

That stewpot metaphor got me thinking about the frog in the hot water metaphor. And I'm trying to say something about Republicans jumping out of the stewpot as soon as the cook walks in, but I'm not sure what.

And that's exactly why I only post commen ts and mindbloggingtypos will never win as "deserving of wider recognition" like bluememe will.

So maybe there will be a very unhappy ending for this Clown Car called the Bush administration. Cool, thanks Blue.
