Missing purgegate e-mails

I think I'm going to go to Costco and get a big old case of popcorn. Here's Kos' post on "The 18-minute gap, Bush-style":

The Bush Administration is working overtime to make this attorney scandal look more and more like Watergate by the day.

In DOJ documents that were publicly posted by the House Judiciary Committee, there is a gap from mid-November to early December in e-mails and other memos, which was a critical period as the White House and Justice Department reviewed, then approved, which U.S. attorneys would be fired while also developing a political and communications strategy for countering any fallout from the firings.

Expect the phrases "constitutional crisis", "impeachment", and "inherent contempt" to start making the rounds.

I've always wondered about these "document dumps". What's to prevent someone from removing the incriminating stuff before turning things over? I guess it's the risk of getting caught.

Maybe Gary Wills will write Bush Agonistas.

I've never seen Bush as rattled as last night. That wasn't anger, or Dubya on the offensive. That was the President fight back panic.

And why didn't the networks interrupt the stupid local news broadcasts and game shows to bring Bush's speech live? Even PBS passed it up. I can't believe how slow MSN is to realize the significance of this scandal.

Thanks for the report on Bush's TV appearance. It seems to echo what other folks are saying. I didn't see it myself.
