Putting the cart out front, then euthanizing the horse

My blogospheric friend and fellow bandwidth-devourer Tom Maguire has a fine post today on which I've added a couple of comments, further to my arguments about the propriety of excusing Judith Miller and Matt Cooper from testifying to the grand jury on grounds that "no crime was committed" in the Plame affair.

Let me get this straight? Judith Miller is the NY Times reporter that said Bush couldn't claim WMD's in Iraq, because that just wasn't true. And, she had "proof." One would assume her source was Plame, or the husband of same. The idea that this is in court, given how sanctimonious the left was about WMD's, must mean that they've gotten caught. NOT someone in the Bush administration! How far along do we have to go to find out that Judith Miller is just a female version of Dan Rather? Some people, it seems are just can't get fired. No matter how egregous are their behaviors!

The more I think about this, the more I realize that not only are you right, but that the Toensing/Sanford alternative just can't make any sense at all. Which is weird, since both the WaPo and the WSJ published versions of it.

Thanks very much for putting us on the path of enlightenment.
