Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison on yesterday's Meet The Press regarding the possible indictments of Libby and Rove:
I certainly hope that if there is going to be an indictment that says something happened, that it is an indictment on a crime and not some perjury technicality where they couldn't indict on the crime and so they go to something just to show that their two years of investigation was not a waste of time and taxpayer dollars.

Hmm, like an investigation of a real estate deal that eventually resulted in impeachment for lying about a consensual sexual relationship? I don't know what's more disturbing, that Hutchison can say something like this without cracking a smile, or that she might actually believe it's consistent with her support for the Starr investigation. One of the very few upsides to the Bush presidency is that it has provided Republican after Republican the opportunity to demonstrate a complete lack of principles.
