"Here come de judge! Here come de judge! Order in the courtroom, here come de judge!"

Clearly, Karl Rove is back at the helm in the White House. It's astounding to me that a Friday 2 PM press conference concerning "Scooter" Libby's indictment and the ongoing investigation of the Valerie Plame CIA leak is already openly referred to as "last week's news" thanks to the Monday AM announcement of the new pick of the litter for the Supreme Court. It's like the old Pigmeat Markham routine (mass-marketed to country bumpkins like me in the mid-60s on Rowen & Martin's Laugh-In quoted above. Are we really as a country such a bleating pack of sheep??
