So Scooter Libby's testimony in the Plame leak case says that Bush authorized leaking classified information in the effort to discredit Plame's husband, Joe Wilson. Then, of course, came months and months of posturing. Of course leaking is bad, says the President. Of course I'm going to get to the bottom of this, says the President. Anyone caught leaking will be shown the door, says the President.

But like so much else coming out of his mouth since he took office, that was a lie.

But hey, it's OK. These days, we can't even agree what a lie is. We can't agree what torture is, or what treason is. Hell, we don't even know what "war" is. Until Bush took office, I thought these were pretty easy concepts to understand. But no more. 9/11 changed everything, didn't you hear? Christians are now the persecuted ones. Up is down and green is blue. War is, literally, peace. Unless we say otherwise. And if you even start thinking that the Emperor has no clothes, we're going to drag you into the town square and set you on fire, you dirty terrorist-lover!

Does anyone care? Is anyone even listening anymore? (This morning, the day after Libby's testimony became public, the infamous "liberal press" didn't ask Scottie McClellan a single question about the Plame case. Not a single one.)

Not much else to say.
