Just kidding. The uproar over the Super Bowl halftime-breast-fiasco reveals much about conservative culture: it's OK to bomb the crap out of Iraq, to lie to the nation and the world, imprison people without charges or due process, sell the environment to the lowest bidder, shovel jobs out of the country, etc., etc., etc.; but it's a scandal to show a woman's breast for a second or two on TV.

Speaking of scandals, have you spotted this development in the CIA/Plame-Leak investigation yet?

Federal law-enforcement officials said that they have developed hard evidence of possible criminal misconduct by two employees of Vice President Dick Cheney's office related to the unlawful exposure of a CIA officer's identity last year. The investigation, which is continuing, could lead to indictments, a Justice Department official said. According to these sources, John Hannah and Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, were the two Cheney employees. "We believe that Hannah was the major player in this," one federal law-enforcement officer said. Calls to the vice president's office were not returned, nor did Hannah and Libby return calls. The strategy of the FBI is to make clear to Hannah "that he faces a real possibility of doing jail time" as a way to pressure him to name superiors, one federal law-enforcement official said.

Wonder what kind of salary the Carlysle Group gives you after you've done jail time for them....
