Otherwise known as Washington D.C. Prissy is just outside the city and will be blogging live from $in city- covering Military Families Speak Out, Gold Star Families, Veterans for Peace and Iraq Veterans Against the War events which will take place May 13th, Saturday morning at the National Mall. For more information about events Military Families Speak Out

But another big event is expected to go down tomorrow and what perfect timing...Rover has rolled over and over and now Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has everything he needs. The big press is gearing up, they smell lot's of blood in the water. Look for Karl Christian Rove to be indicted tomorrow.

That Fitz; Prissy bets Rove didn't have pocket lint left in his drawers after that last time in front of the Grand Jury. Fitz knows bad criminals always want to save their own sorry rears in the end and he squeezed Rove until he got everything from him he could get. Gauging on Fitzgeralds previous cases that would have been alot, before he cut him lose. Or maybe the Grand Jury was just as patient as he. And a Grand Jury they are...

Truthout Rove Informs White House He Will Be Indicted

Rove testified that he first found out about Plame Wilson from reading a newspaper report in July 2003 and only after the story was published did he share damaging information about her CIA status with other reporters.

However, evidence has surfaced during the course of the two-year-old investigation that shows Rove spoke with at least two reporters about Plame Wilson prior to the publication of the column.

The explanation Rove provided to the grand jury - that he was dealing with more urgent White House matters and therefore forgot - has not convinced Fitzgerald that Rove has been entirely truthful in his testimony.

Sources close to the case said there is a strong chance Rove will also face an additional charge of obstruction of justice, adding that Fitzgerald has been working meticulously over the past few months to build an obstruction case against Rove because it "carries more weight" in a jury trial and is considered a more serious crime.

Prissy has great pictures to show you...but it will have to wait until Saturday. The camera cord is in O-HI-O.

New Zealand Scoop Bush dismisses Iran's letter

ORLANDO: President George W Bush said today that a letter from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad this week did not answer the key question of when Tehran would abandon its nuclear programme.

"It looks like it did not answer the main question that the world is asking and that is, 'When will you get rid of your nuclear programme?'," Bush said in his first public comment on the letter.

This is the kind of note our president writes.

Did he read the letter before or after making his comments? Condi dismissed it before she read it.

Dubya, like it or not, the president of Iran is someone you should not mess with if you are unwilling to use diplomacy. Unlike you and by extension U.S.-he's got friends...

Yet another republican in trouble for greed Lewis Surfaces in Probe of Cunningham

The U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles has issued subpoenas in an investigation into the relationship between Lewis (R-Redlands) and a Washington lobbyist linked to disgraced former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Rancho Santa Fe), three people familiar with the investigation said.

The investigation is part of an expanding federal probe stemming from Cunningham's conviction for accepting $2.4 million in bribes and favors from defense contractors, according to the three sources.

It is not clear where the investigation is headed or what evidence the government has. But the probe suggests that investigators are looking past Cunningham to other legislators and, perhaps, the "earmarking" system that members of Congress use to allocate funds.
