The end of t3h 5ux0r? (translation: The end of these distressing times?)

It looks like Scooter Libby is going to be indicted tomorrow, while the axe still dangles but has yet to fall on Karl Rove. However, Scooter's a start. A big start. And Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald is moving into new digs in Washington, and is quite unlikely to give up anytime soon. He's moving very cautiously. Caution is not necessarily a bad thing. Caution in order to make the charges you eventually file stick is actually a Good Thing.(tm) The scuttlebutt is that he sees a few cracks in Rove's armor and he thinks he might be turnable.

Also the real polls are starting to come out about the "Sucky Six" propositions, and it looks like they are not jibing with the poll the Asshole from Austria commissioned at SurveyUSA. They're going down, down, down, down, down, down. And the trend lines are moving in the direction of rejection. Hasta la vista, Props 73, 74, 75, 76, 77 and 78. It looks like the other two are also going down as well, but I'm not shedding any tears about them. They are both showing some flaws, as in possible unconstitutionality in 79's case and disincentives for clean, green energy in 80's case. My advice still holds: NO ON EVERYTHING. TELL AH-NULD NEIN!

If I were the folks at SurveyUSA, I'd quickly slap together something that wasn't a blatant push-poll and get that going to redeem the company's credibility. Because the big losers, aside from Herr Gropenfuhrer, is SurveyUSA.
