Twas the night before Fitzmas and all through the blogs,
Not a creature was stirring, not even the firedogs.
The indictments were sealed at the courthouse with care
In hopes that Karl Rove soon would be there.
Lefty bloggers were snuggled all safe in their beds
While visions of frog-marches danced in their heads
When over at Truthout there arose such a clatter,
We all surfed over to see what was the matter.
"Rove's been indicted," Jason Leopold claimed,
Without much concern for those he defamed.
When what should my wondering eyes happen to see
Than Ambassador Joe Wilson, sipping iced tea.
"My wife's been exposed," he announced with a cry,
"Rove told Bob Novak, she's a CIA spy!"
"On Kristof, on Hamsher, on Oliver Willis!
On Maguire and Moran and a blogger named Phyllis!"
"Rove must be destroyed," he exclaimed with some gall,
"Now smash away, smash away, smash away all!"
"There's only one thing that would make this all groovy,
If Tom Cruise was selected for my part in the movie."
But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight
"Fitzmas ain't coming, so to all a good night!"
