So, just what is this trial all about, anyway?
More important: Why is Patrick Fitzgerald still investigating this case - after already wasting millions of taxpayer dollars looking into a "crime" that never happened?
It's a mystery.
Observers of the trial disagree as to who's scoring the most points. But this much is certain: Even if Libby is convicted, it won't have added one bit to the nation's knowledge of what happened in this case.
Fitzgerald, no doubt, is pushing forward in order to claim at least one scalp so that he can justify his out-of-control investigation.
But if any case should finally put to death the notion that there's a need for special prosecutors, this is it.
I'm all for that.
