Who's on First? Who's Indicted Second?
Patrick Fitzgerald is right: Baseball metaphors are all the rage. They are just usually much, much shorter than his. By our count, Fitzgerald's "explanation" of why his leak investigation did not result in leak charges lasted about as long as the investigation and left us feeling more confused. Karl threw a fastball that hit Valerie Plame but Joe Wilson is umpire and Patrick Fitzgerald is the sand and the first baseman has WMDs... Isn't the baseball metaphor most relevant to Scooter Libbey right now the one about "pitching" and "catching"?
Speaking of manlove: Hey, for a guy who doesn't leak, Fitzy sure seems to like Mike Isikoff a lot...
