I've been on the road for most of the last three weeks and have read some of the Rovegate coverage and seen almost none of the TV coverage. If business as usual is any indicator, I assume by now the Whores are out in full force parroting the RNC blastfaxes about a Democrat-and-Terrorist-led political witchhunt against Rove.

One question: does the present media battle really matter at all? Of course, media battles and breadth of coverage are extremely important in attempting to compel the government to start investigations. But isn't the federal investigation still ongoing? If Fitz ends up indicting Rove and/or others, then it doesn't really matter what Ken Mehlman or Kay Bailey Hutchison or Sean Hannity have to say about it, does it?

Likewise, if there are no actual criminal indictments, nothing in the world could force the Bush administration to hold any of its members to account, much less Rove, no matter what the wrongdoing, no matter how loud the outcry. We've seen this again and again and again, right? In the absence of a formal indictment, we could expect nothing less than a promotion for Rove. Right?
