Wake Up Sheeple!

Another Rove observation: People need to stop hiding behind Clintonian semantics here and understand that even if no actual technical violation of the law is found in the Rove/Plame case it will still be true, based on what we know now from the Time emails, that White House actions compromised a CIA asset during a time of war. What would Hannity, Limbaugh, Scarborough and all the cable loudmouths be saying if it had been Sidney Blumenthal? The president has said he would fire anyone who did such a thing. Ergo: the president must fire Rove or break his word. It's going to be an interesting few weeks.

My sentiment, but not my words, those words were spoken by Andrew Sullivan conservative blogger. Sullivan's question is a good one, can you imagine the coverage this story would have gotten if it had been in the Clinton administration. FAUX News would be wall-to-wall, the missing white girls would disappear television screens, Sean Hannity would be ready to explode, his finger-wagging out of control, and there are some who still say we have a liberal media?

One other observation: This investigation should not end with Rove, who else knew? In particular what did Bush know and when did he know it?
