Free Monica Goodling

This could be a big deal. As a DOJ employee, Monica Goodling worked directly with Karl Rove to install one of Rove's cronies as a USA in Arkansas. She pled the fifth to try to get out of testifying before Congress -- can you even do that? -- and now comes news that someone's floating the idea of offering her immunity. I hope they do. Truthful testimony from Monica Goodling is what Karl Rove does not want.

State of play: My guess right now is that Gonzales's testimony next Tuesday will be a disaster; the White House will spend Wednesday through Friday distancing themselves from him; Gonzales will resign on Friday. But of course my track record on these things is not great...
