Name the Subject of This Blind Quote

He's a vile, detestable, moralistic person with no heart and no conscience who believes he's been tapped by God to do very important things

Has to be Ken Starr right? Wrong!

Apparently this is what the WH is saying about Patrick Fitzgerald in anticipation of indictments.

Ok try this one. Name this Presidential defender:

I certainly hope that if there is going to be an indictment that says something happened, that it is an indictment on a crime and not some perjury technicality where they couldn't indict on the crime and so they go to something just to show that their two years of investigation was not a waste of time and taxpayer dollars. So they go to something that trips someone up because they said something in the first grand jury and then maybe they found new information or they forgot something and they tried to correct that in a second grand jury.

I think we should be very careful here, especially as we are dealing with something very public and people's lives in the public arena. I do not think we should prejudge. I think it is unfair to drag people through the newspapers week after week after week, and let's just see what the charges are. Let's tone down the rhetoric and let's make sure that if there are indictments that we don't prejudge.

Anyone? No, not Paul Begala, but it is a Texan.

Its Kay Bailey Hutchinson on Meet the Press.

Amazing what difference a couple of years and the party in the White House can make. (Kay Bailey, in case you forgot, did vote for impeachment a couple of years ago for precisely that.)
