Leopold on Rove

It’s been over 24 hours since Jason Leopold first reported that Karl Rove is to be indicted for perjury, and he continues to run, absolutely alone, with the story.  Isn’t that just a bit odd?  I know the disgusting American media is, well, disgusting, but I find it hard to believe that there has been not one peep out of them since Leopold first nailed it down on Friday.  There have been reports that such a thing might be coming, but we have seen vague reports like that for almost a year.  If this or something like this – Leopold may not have the mechanics of the indictment process exactly right –  is true, Leopold has an amazing scoop and is a hero of journalism, and the disgusting American media is still disgusting.  If it is not true, and Leopold has been spun by Rove or made a terrible mistake, he becomes the new Tom Flocco.  Leopold has been the boy who cried wolf on Rove’s indictment for quite a while now, and has a book out which he may want to promote.  He has quite a history which does not provide a great deal of comfort.
