Today's Rove roundup

Kevin Drum on Republican relativism, aka, IOKIYAR:

Instead, for most conservatives, Plamegate has now turned into the public relations task of convincing the public that even if Rove did out Plame, outing a covert CIA agent is a perfectly acceptable thing for a White House aide to do.

Welcome to the modern Republican Party.

If it aint on TV it isn't really happening.

It's becoming ever clearer that even so-called "responsible" Republicans (John McCain, et al.) now see a perfect identity between their party's narrow political interests and the interests of the country at large. A very dangerous state of affairs, indeed.

I hear a lot of Republicans making snide remarks about it being a first for liberals to be outraged over blowing a CIA agent's cover.

The problem is, the charge of hypocrisy cuts both ways. In any two-party political system, if one party is taking the opposite of its "natural" stance on some issue, then the other side probably is too.

If the party lineup in this whole mess were the other way, then the talking points gangs on both sides would be taking the exact opposite position from what they are now.

Karl Rove has been a political force that has definetly raised many eyebrows over the course of his career. The research I have done on him has made me question the ways on how he gets things done. I do consider myself a liberal so of course his actions do conflict with me and yes I do realize that he is not the only politician out there pulling strings to get things accomplished in his favor. I also think it is important for those politicians to be brought to the publics attention so that they don't get worse (if that is possible).

For those interested: There is a somewhat biased approach to it but it is still interesting to watch. With that in mind the documentary is called "Bush's Brain"
