The Slug Has Crawled From His Hidey-Hole

By some mysterious reckoning of White House tealeaves, Karl Rove is being allowed out in public again. He was made to vanish following Scooter Libby’s October 28th indictment and in anticipation of his own indictment. But Die Herren Rove and RNC Chairman Mehlman blustered forth yesterday full of plans and warnings. Rove and Mehlman spoke at the Republican National Committee winter meeting which was held in Washington, DC January 19 and 20. They issued admonitions and said the GOP plan was to keep on doing exactly what it had been doing for the past five years. And, of course they said they would diligently pursue GOP evildoers and terrorists living and working right here in the US of A. Mehlman said, “If Republicans are guilty of illegal or inappropriate behavior, then they should pay the price and they should suffer the consequences." Howard Dean quickly responded, "Karl Rove only has a White House job and a security clearance because President Bush has refused to keep his promise to fire anyone involved in revealing the identity of an undercover CIA operative.” He added, "The truth is, Karl Rove breached our national security for partisan gain and that is both unpatriotic and wrong." So what are these two up to? Same old same old. Describe GOP misconduct as though the Democrats had committed the offenses. Then stand in front of the world with CORRUPT POLITICIAN printed on their foreheads and point fingers at everyone else. Rove warned Republicans about getting smug. "The GOP's progress during the last four decades is a stunning political achievement. But it is also a cautionary tale of what happens to a dominant party -- in this case the Democrat Party -- when its thinking becomes ossified, when its energy begins to drain, when an entitlement mentality takes over, and when political power becomes an end in itself rather than a means to achieve the common good." Or, to say it another way: I am not a fat pig, sleazoid, rent-boy humping, lying, warmongering, thieving, sack of shit thug, you are.
