Speaking too soon about speaking too soon
The still permalinkless Mickey Kaus takes a poke at Rick Berke for this article in which Berke says that Enron will be a big political issue for the Democrats. Snarks Kaus:
Does anyone, from the distant historical vantage point of two months later, think Enron will be a huge issue for the Democrats?
Emphasis Kaus'. Well, you may be right, Mickey, but I'll remind you of this story from today's news
. At the least, it'll bring Enron back into the public consciousness for a few days, and who knows? Maybe David Duncan has a few juicy tidbits to tell in return for a soft sentence. As the Chron says
As part of his plea agreement [Duncan] will meet with investigators at their bidding to testify, review documents, provide documents and share any other information he has related to "knowledge of all criminal activities."
Like I say, you may well be right, but I'll wait and see how this ends before I agree.
