Why isn't Chris spitting at the camera?

I don't watch nearly as much of Chris Matthews as I once did. He used to have a fairly balanced show, but has drifted pretty much completely off the left edge of things. His recent quest, of course, has been the 'Scooter' Libby indictment. Matthews appears to enjoy the way "Scooter" falls off his tongue, and has been all verklempt at the idea that ethics problems exist in the Bush White House (and specifically among the Vice President's staff).

So, now that Bob Woodward has said to Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald that he was aware of Plame's CIA employment a month before it was supposedly leaked to the press as a way to punish Joe Wilson for his scathing critique of the reasons for the war, many are saying that these charges may have to be dropped. Fitzgerald has boxed himself in with this statement...
"He was at the beginning of the chain of phone calls, the first official to disclose this information outside the government to a reporter. And then he lied about it afterwards, under oath and repeatedly."

Now, my question is: Why isn't Chris spitting at the camera at the idea that many are saying that these indictments will be dropped? He sure seems to be still wondering who did something wrong.
