If You Want to Walk, Don't Talk

It's official. The finest legal mind in the Senate, in fact the finest mind anywhere has made rhetoric match reality.

In today's politicized legal environment, you're safer if you refuse to testify at all.

In this morning's hearing (can you believe that Congress has already had 300 hearings to investigate the Bush administration in just the last 100 days?), Senator Arlen Spector told former White House political director Sara M. Taylor

"There's no way you can come out a winner," said Specter, R-Pa. "You might have been on safer legal ground if you'd said absolutely nothing."
No kidding. I'll bet that thought has resonated among folks after Scooter Libby learned it the hard way.

Oh, and by the way, if anyone cares: Ms. Taylor says that she and President Bush never talked about the firings of the political appointees at the Justice Department and that she didn't have a hand in drawing up the list of appointees to fire.

That will not have any effect on the continuing investigations, of course.
