As I stepped out today I noticed to myself, "it feels a little indicty today."

Fitz should go ahead and announce his findings today, otherwise Bush will have to wait yet another day to announce his next SCOTUS candidate. It's that obvious.

Fitzgerald is releasing documents at Noon and holding a press conference at 2 PM EST.

Now go back to sleep.

Thank you, clevershark. Until your comment, I could never figure out where the word "Fitzmas" came from. I knew what it meant, and I knew the name Fitzgerald, and.. well.. I had all of the pieces of the puzzle. But one was turned upside down. Somehow your comment made my brain start working again.

Plutor: I'd think this thread would've cleared it up for you.

Moral: Read MeFi Every Day.

Also: Incredibly lame MeTa post. Sorry.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

I'm just pleased by the sudden resurgence of popular interest in the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Gyan - I believe you meant to coin the word "Fitzle" as in "Fitzle out." You're welcome.

What, no gloating about a Bad News Friday?

So, pretty much more of the same all over, but just a little nicer about it.
