Merry Fitzmas, Yet Again

The net keeps getting drawn tighter to the top

As he drew back the curtain this week on the evidence against Vice President Cheney's former top aide, Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald for the first time described a "concerted action" by "multiple people in the White House" -- using classified information -- to "discredit, punish or seek revenge against" a critic of President Bush's war in Iraq.

Bluntly and repeatedly, Fitzgerald placed Cheney at the center of that campaign. Citing grand jury testimony from the vice president's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Fitzgerald fingered Cheney as the first to voice a line of attack that at least three White House officials would soon deploy against former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV.

Meanwhile, over at Denial Central, otherwise known as Frontpage Magazine, Ben Johnson refuses to assume the worst

This gets funnier and funnier all the time, but the sad thing is that - as always - the joke is on us.
