Yea, this'll work:
The lawyers said any conversations Cheney and the officials had about Plame with one another or with reporters were part of their normal duties because they were discussing foreign policy and engaging in an appropriate "policy dispute." Cheney's attorney went further, arguing that Cheney is legally akin to the president because of his unique government role and has absolute immunity from any lawsuit.

U.S. District Judge John D. Bates asked: "So you're arguing there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- these officials could have said to reporters that would have been beyond the scope of their employment," whether the statements were true or false?

Yep, that's what they're arguing. Now I know we have been living a Kafkaesque nightmare of late, but I just don't see the judicial branch going for this crap anymore, especially on the heels of the naked attempts to politicize the Department of Justice. Law enforcement is stinging from the humiliation, and it's payback time. Big Dick is not a popular man, and there will be not a peep of protest from any corner if he is taken down.

You listening, Legislative Branch? Don't you want summadat? Impeach the Dick.

Tick, tick...
