Obsequious boobs . . .

Spotty has got to quit reading Powerline; it's distracting, but these obsequious boobs are just too funny to ignore. Here's John this afternoon, in the concluding paragraph of his homily on Why It Wasn't So Bad Afterall:
If Rove is not indicted, what we have here is a terrible human tragedy affecting one man, Scooter Libby, but not a serious problem for the administration. On the contrary, it is evident from the indictment itself that administration officials including Dick Cheney, Ari Fleischer, and others followed President Bush's order to cooperate fully with the Plame investigation. But it's premature to conclude that the administration is out of the woods until we find out what, if anything, happens to Rove. In the meantime, Libby is entitled to a presumption of innocence, notwithstanding the grim picture that the indictment paints.
Oh really? The commission of five felonies over a period of two years is a tragedy for the perpetrator? Hysterical laughter. Sorry. No, the tragedy John, my self-absorbed friend, is the damage done to the CIA and Valerie Plame's foreign sources, and to the national security interests of the United States.

And apparently, the administration cooperation is not quite so complete as Powerline want you to believe, gentle reader, because the investigation is continuing into the Flip the Scooter phase.
