Can we bring popcorn?

According to Newsweek, Libby’s lawyers have subpoenaed Karl Rove.

First, I should confess that I secretly hope Scooter Libby doesn’t have to go to jail.  No one with a name that cute could possibly survive the big house.  (Yes, I know he’d go to a minimum security facility, it was a joke for Pete’s sake.)

Still, assuming his defense team continues to make life unpleasant for the White House, personally I’ll be satisfied if he receives probation.  (And may I suggest having him do his community service cleaning the toilets at the CIA).

Meanwhile, here’s the question of the day: Is Libby’s legal team bluffing (pressuring Bush to pardon him), or are they seriously going to call Rove as a witness? 

Please let it be the latter, pretty please with sugar on top.  Talk about a great show.  I’m generally no fan of cameras in the courtroom, but not having Rove’s testimony televised (which in federal court it won’t be) will truly be a crime against entertainment.

    Karl Rove is worse than sewer sludge. It would be difficult for me to pick which man I found the most detestable, given Bush, Cheney or Rove. Lump them all together and they form one stinking pile of dung. If any of these thugs get their Just Desserts, it will be cause for celebration. Just thinking about them and their supporters makes me want to reach for some air freshener.

    As I understand it, Cheney is also on the witness list…..

    What lengths will the Administration go to in order to keep those two (Rove and Cheney) off the witness stand?
