Waiting For Hell To Freeze

E.J. Dionne writes:

The Fitzgerald indictment makes perfectly clear that the White House misled the public as to its involvement in sliming Wilson and talking about Plame.

Bush needs to tell the public -- yes, the old phrase still applies -- what he knew about the operation to discredit Wilson and when he knew it. And he shouldn't hide behind those "legalisms" that Republicans were so eager to condemn in the Clinton years.

Dionne is living in fantasyland if he thinks Bush will do anything like that.

Instead of waiting for hell to freeze over, Dionne should encourage his employer to find out what Bush knew and what steps he took to cover it up.

That's nearly as unlikely -- like hell reaching the low 40s.

Maybe Dionne should get off his ass and do it himself.
