Remember Patrick Fitzgerald's other case -- the investigation into whether Bush administration officials were feeding classified information to members of AIPAC, who then passed it along to Israel? David Corn reports that no fewer than six Bushites have recently lawyered up, and according to one of them, the case is about to blow wide open.

We got quite excited for a minute or two until we scrolled through the comments section and saw reader Gare's comprehensive list of major Bush scandals that were about to blow wide open, but never quite did:

In mid-2001, when his popularity was plummeting, we were given to describing Mr. Bush as Reagan without the Teflon. Little did we dream . . . .
