A Fitzmas Fizzle

From the Associated Press:
Top White House aide Karl Rove has been told by prosecutors he won't be charged with any crimes in the investigation into the leak of a CIA officer's identity, his lawyer said Tuesday, lifting a heavy burden from one of President Bush's most trusted advisers.

Attorney Robert Luskin said that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald informed him of the decision on Monday, ending months of speculation about the fate of Rove, the architect of Bush's 2004 re-election now focused on stopping Democrats from capturing the House or Senate in this November's elections.
This news is especially disheartening to the Liberal cause, busy with their Take Down America conference, coming as it does on the heels of the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, one of the Left's most potent allies in the War on Bush.
