Libby Circus Is in Town!
The Scooter Libby trial begins for real today! And here's the good news: our good friend the Washington Post reporter with a thousand conflicts of interest has made the jury!
Among the jurors is a former Washington Post reporter who once worked for now-Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward, a defense witness, and until recently was a neighbor of NBC's Tim Russert, a prosecution witness.
As regular readers will recall, this gentleman is buddies with Walter Pincus and his BFF is Scooter's over-40 football friend.
The opening arguments laid out the defense's plan: throw Karl Rove under the bus. This is shocking, unless you were paying attention back in March.
