Is the chorus warming up to sing "Oh When The Frogs Go Marching In" to serenade Turdblossom?Jim VandeHei for WaPo this morning had a 2-page inconclusive account about the end of the investigatory road for Karl Rove. There was no readily apparent news value in it, to justify it's length and placement in the paper today, beyond idle speculation. Except now MSNBC's David Shuster has reported on the Keith Olbermann show: "I am convinced that Karl Rove will, in fact, be indicted." (Raw Story has a transcript.)GIven the historical predisposition of Big DC Media to looking the other way, ordinarily, when it comes to speculation about impropriety by anyone in the Bush White House, it does seem noteworthy that two prominent reports have appeared today.
