My Delayed Reaction to Matt "The Rat" Cooper

It took me two full days to react to how Matt Cooper, after weeks of omerta like an old-fashioned Mustached Pete, suddenly makes a mockery of the whole "I'm-a-brave-journalist-won't-reveal-my-sources" thing by spilling the beans on Karl Rove on Meet the Press and in an article in Time.

Yeah, I know, he was forced to testify before the Grand Jury. However, I am not aware of any subpoena that forced him to testify before Meet the Press or Time Magazine. Coop's attitude seems to be, "Well, I was forced to rat out Karl Rove, so I might as go the whole-hog Sammy Gravano route while Judy Miller rots in jail."

The whole thing makes me want to... well, you get the picture.
