Mixed Presidential Scandal Metaphors

Responding to a question from Hardball with Chris Matthews guest host Campbell Brown, about a poll showing only 25 percent of respondents thought the White House was fully cooperating with the Valerie Plame leak investigation:

JOHN FUND, COLUMNIST, "THE WALL STREET JOURNAL": This has been a political firestorm. And the White House has mishandled it on several occasions.

But I have to tell you, the facts are going to come out and I think, ultimately, this is going to be viewed as a tempest in a teapot dome, because we know three facts from the last week.

Yes, soon it will all be water under the gate.
