Self-Interest Makes Strange Bedfellows

Pravda-on-the-Potomac stalwart Richard Cohen, who I don't usually bother to read, is arguing today that Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, who is investigating the Plame Game, should simply pack it all up and go home. This in the face of those on the Moonbat Left who see visions of Karl Rove indictments dancing in their heads:

More is at stake here than bringing down Karl Rove or some other White House apparatchik, or even settling some score with Miller who, by herself, is sometimes accused of taking this nation to war in Iraq. The greater issue is control of information. If anything good comes out of the Iraq War, it has to be a realization that bad things can happen to good people when the administration -- any administration -- is in sole control of knowledge and those who know the truth are afraid to pipe up. This -- this creepy silence -- will be the consequence of dusting off rarely used statutes to still the tongues of leakers and intimidate the press in its pursuit of truth, fame and choice restaurant tables. Apres Miller, comes moi.

Is Cohen actually a deep-cover sleeper Rove agent suddenly called to active service? Ya never know, do you?
