This isn't a blog yet, but it will be a blog when "Rovegate" ends with Karl Rove's long-awaited frogmarch and we start asking which of the WHIGs will be the next in line in the amphibian parade from the White House. In the meantime, please go to the oft-updated True Blue Liberal blog.

We need to control the language of the current scandal. We can't let it be reduced to "Rovegate" or "Plamegate," because that story will end when Turdblossom and/or Scooter are escorted from the West Wing. "Iraqgate" belongs to Reagan and Bush the First and their arming of Saddam, "Wargate" is too general (and probably a video game) ... I still like "Whiggate", because I think that as soon as you start explaining who the WHIGs are (they make Nixon's Plumbers looks like penny-ante thieves in comparison), you've easily linked the war aims expressed in the Downing Street Memo, the White House Iraq Group's conspiracy to falsify and sell the reasons for war, and the outing of Valerie Plame to cover up those falsifications, all in one narrative. "Rovegate"suggests a deceptively simple isolated short story, which ends when the long-awaited frogmarch finally takes place. "Whiggate" forces you to ask, Who's next? Andrew Card, "Scooter" Libby, Condi, McClellan, "Dick" Cheney ... ? It has the feel and power of Watergate to reach farther and farther up the ladder, with the end target being obvious. Also, we can make up t-shirts that say "W stands for Whiggate."

If you are interested in participating in making this a Group Blog on the Whiggate scandal, then you can leave a comment below or contact trueblueliberal (at) gmail (dot) com.

Won't this be fun?

The White House Iraq Group (WHIG), with members Rove, Card, Rice, Libby, Matalin, Hughes, Hadley et al., is the group that sold us the Iraq War with false information, and tried to silence one prominent critic by exposing a CIA agent's identity.
WHIGGATE is the scandal that will bring [or should have brought] down the Bush/Cheney Administration.
WHIGGATE UPDATE is a clearing house for information about this group and its activities.

According to the results of free non-scientific online tests, TBL found that he was "Existentialist", "Communist", and "A Grammar God," i.e., if he were a short wall-eyed Frenchman rather than a 6'3" blond American, he would be constantly mistaken for Jean-Paul Sartre!
