Ken Mehlman is outraged

First Cooper shed some light on what he said while testifying last week during his visit to Tim Russert on "Meet the Press." Then Ken Mehlman repeated the same exact thing at least five times this morning on "Meet the Press." Now I think I'm done covering the whole RoveGate, at least for today. You can read transcript, along with the appearance of former Clinton CofS John Podesta, here.

There's a lot out there tonight, from the news that came out of Cooper's appearance on MTP, Wilson's appearance on FTN, Cooper's first-hand account of his grand jury testimoney in this week's Time, and intimations that Scooter Libby (VPOTUS's CofS) may be a big player in the kerfuffle, too.

You can check Time (stories here, here, here, and Cooper's account here), NYT, WaPo, Newsweek (stories here, here, and here) and all the other regular suspects to read more. I'm taking a day off from this whole thing.

But before I let you go, here are some stats from Mehlman's appearance today:
  • He used some version of "the information out this week exonerates and vindicates, does not implicate Karl" four times.
  • He used the word "outrageous" six times.
I hate when people repeat things over and over and over again. I heard you the first time, Ken.
