My Final Word on Guckert (...for now...)

Via Kos comes a link to a great column from Joe Conason, the guy who wrote "The Hunting of the President":

Imagine the media explosion if a male escort had been discovered operating as a correspondent in the Clinton White House. Imagine that he was paid by an outfit owned by Arkansas Democrats and had been trained in journalism by James Carville. Imagine that this gentleman had been cultivated and called upon by Mike McCurry or Joe Lockhart—or by President Clinton himself. Imagine that this "journalist" had smeared a Republican Presidential candidate and had previously claimed access to classified documents in a national-security scandal...

Why doesn't any of this kind of stuff seem to stick to BushCo? Why??

Listen, I can't really add a thing to Conason's column, so I'm going to leave the Gannon / Guckert discussion right there for the time being. Kos and AMERICAblog continue to follow the story, which is just really breaking in the national media.
