Libby throws Rove under the bus

Fire Dog Lake's outstanding coverage of and live blogging from the "Scooter" Libby trial continues with this PoliticsTV.com video. Christy Hardin Smith of Firedoglake.com and Marcy Wheeler of TheNextHurrah.com talked about covering the first day of the Scooter Libby trial as credentialed bloggers outside of the Courthouse in Washington, DC.

BTW, Jane is busy recovering from her surgery, and is hoping to be back on "Plamegate" detail as soon as possible.

The latest revelations in this trial have got to be causing some serious acid reflux in the stomachs of some of the most powerful men in the Executive Branch.

...and I get the feeling that things are going to get worse for BushCo in the foreseeable future. There might not be enough pardons to go around.

And in an especially cool development today, Senator Dodd dropped into FDL for a short live blogging session, but he was called back to the chamber for a vote, so it was cut short. Chris said he'd return at some point for another chat.

I think this event is significant in that it shows how important the blogs have become in shaping and amplifying public opinion, and the candidates are acknowledging this trend.

Who'da thunk the internets would ever get this cool?

Cool echo of Ned in Webb's response last night.
