Jane Harman’s Stolen Moments

Jane-Harmon-NYT.jpg

Now the question is, if you were a photo editor on this Jane Harman scandal story, and Crowley dropped this in your lap (with the hush-hush; the swoon; the assembly line of suits, nobody paying attention, business-as-usual; and especially, Mr. Judgmental in the middle, casting the long, suspicious-looking glance), could you resist?

By the way, that wouldn’t be a recording device (disguised as a coffee-cup) the woman far-right is holding, would it?

    that wouldn’t be a recording device the woman far-right is holding…? Looks like a coffee mug.
    Jane, poor Jane…played with fire and got caught on the wire. Now she’s wondering which lawyer to hire.
    Couldn’t resist.

    Jay,
    Yep, I meant the coffee cup! Love the rhyme.

    I think Harman and Costa are using the same hair dye. And blow dryer.

    I don’t know what any of you are talking about. I wish I did.
    My small contribution: The woman looks like and older Paris Hilton to me.

    To me it looks as if she’s just said,
    “Laws are for the little people.”

    So far, it looks like Harman has been slimed by the recent release of a months old “story.” The real story is that members of Congress are being spied upon.
    Anyway she’s asked for the wiretap transcript to be released, so until it is, I think it’s premature to assume she did something wrong.
