Libby's Lawyer: It Was Rove

"Scooter" Libby's lawyer in his opening statements at Libby's trial shifted the blame to Karl Rove and said that his client was being scapegoated for the Plame leak.

This is the story that just won't quit, and I don't think there's a rational sentient being on the planet that doesn't, in his heart of hearts, believe that Rove was NOT behind the Plame leak.

So it was a smart move on the part of Theodore V. Wells Jr., Libby's lawyer. Shift the focus away from your client and put it on the one person who is most likely to have really committed the act.

It's a tactic as old as dirt, but it works.

Now let's watch the fun as the truth finally comes out. Maybe Karl Rove won't slither out of this one. Maybe he's going to end up in the graybar hotel after all.
