I remember an early episode of the West Wing, where the characters talk about "taking stories out with the trash." Apparently, this is a common practice in Washington, as stories that look bad for certain individuals are released to the public on Fridays (because they think fewer people will read and care about it with the weekend right around the corner), and the story gets defused. Of course, with this practice about 80% of the news that comes out of this administration would have to be released on Friday. However, I have noticed that they often make use of this practice, and we got another one today. Here's a possible reason why.


It's so nice that we're getting back to REAL scandals after all these years of silly stories about "torture gulags" and "crimes against the Constitution" and "wars"...
