Irrespective of how you feel about the Vikileaks episode, you have to recognize in today's hearing that the Conservatives were hoist on their own petard. (Yes, I did see Veep this week.)
Check out Kady O'Malley's liveblog as well. It draws out the point, in its entirety, that Del Mastro's witch hunt, fishing around the Liberal research bureau in particular, was an exercise in sideshow politics.
Also, note a few references there to "key Liberal bloggers" and a "specific Liberal blogger" who apparently pointed the finger at the NDP at some point (11:23 mark). I don't remember bloggers in particular who wrote about this but I'm sure the issue was discussed in all corners of the blogosphere as the story developed over the days.
Anyway, one lesson from the day, Liberal bloggers are apparently quite influential and read all around Parliament Hill. (You knew that anyway.)
