Milbank’s trio of quotes is pretty scary. Actually, I think DiIulio is right to be apologetic, though I’m delighted that he made his criticism and don’t doubt that it’s substantively correct. White House staffers have a very strong duty not to kiss and tell. But he does sound a lot like the defendant at a show trial, and there’s no doubt Bush, Rove & Co. wanted to make him sound that way. That doesn’t say good things about them.
