A few days ago, someone, somewhere in Blogistan, noted that George W. Bush’s stated desire to “get to the bottom” of the exposure of a covert CIA officer by people in his immediate official family had a lot in common with O.J. Simpson’s stated desire to find the man who murdered his wife.
Alas, I can’t remember who it was, and Googling hasn’t turned up the item. Can anyone provide the source? (I could just steal it, of course, but I’ve already used up my plagiarism budget for the week on this item.)
Update: Mystery solved, by a reader. I couldn’t remember where in Blogistan I had found it, because I hadn’t found it in Blogistan at all, but amid the corpses of murdered trees. My mind was playing tricks on me: obviously, I wanted to be agreeing with Jeanne d’Arc or Teresa Nielsen Hayden rather than with Maureen Dowd. (Who wouldn’t?) I guess we’ll just have to give Dowd a Blind Chipmunk Award on this one.
Blind Chipmunk Award: Given to someone who never, ever does anything right on the occasion of having done something right. “Even a blind chimpmunk stumbles on an acorn every once in a while.”
