Who Stole Fitzmas, Day two -- the saga continues.

As I mentioned yesterday, Leopold of "truthout" says Karl Rove was indicted last Saturday in the Valerie Plame non-leak case. This has prompted celebrations of "Fitzmas" (christmas delivered by Fitzgerald, the special prosecuter) among the left.

But the Grinch seems to have stolen Fitzmas. Wonkette tackles this sordid story in an entry titled "Karl Rove Indicted, Everyone With a Blog to Get Their Own Unicorn", but my favorite line there was from a commenter, who said: "from what I read on firedoglake, Jason Leopold has until Thursday before everyone gets to mock him, again".

Also, Karl Rove spoke today at the American Enterprise Institute. Which wouldn't be a big deal, except that as we learned from Howling Latina:

And before you discount Leopold's story, you might want to check out what another blogger discovered. Rove is busy cancelling appointments.

Democratic Underground reports that a previously posted Rove speech to the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy and Research was deleted from the "coming events section at [the] AEI Web site."

Citing the Democratic Underground for news is like asking your two-year-old for directions.

But even if the facts were wrong, maybe the story's still true. So we'll keep a close eye out for that nasty Grinch who stole Fitzmas.

You've done a great job of showing how frenzied the liberal press (mainstream or otherwise) get about this stuff. Keep up the good work.
