1. Javert's Amazing Pirouettes
2. Rove’s dream coming true in Alabama: Siegelman in jail, Exxon
exonerated

Javert’s Amazing Pirouettes
Scott Horton of Harper's

....Unfortunately for Franklin, it now appears that the most senior
career prosecutors didn’t adopt the views he took as a proxy for his
political superiors–they didn’t think there was a case to be brought
against Siegelman. In the last ten days, the Birmingham News
grudgingly acknowledged that the two senior career prosecutors on
the case, John W. Scott and Charles Niven, had concluded there was
no case against Siegelman.

....The new Franklin spin is that all this points to a split between
Montgomery and Washington, that Montgomery was pushing for an
indictment and Washington was against it.

That’s nonsense.

Rove’s dream coming true in Alabama:
Siegelman in jail, Exxon exonerated
Blog: Over the Line, Smokey!

I’m no expert on Alabama. But something dark is going on there,
some expression of the Rovian dream for America.

  • Don Siegelman, Democratic governor, brings action against
    ExxonMobil for fraudulently underpaying oil and gas drilling
    royalties.
  • E-M is found guilty, and a judgement of 3 billion bucks is
    entered against them.
  • Siegelman gets indicted, convicted and imprisoned under
    suspicious circumstances
  • The eight Republican members of the Alabama Supreme Court
    outvote the single Democrat and vacate the fraud verdict.

The dark forces unite. Exxon you know about.

Where does
Rove come in?
