"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Thursday, June 23, 2005


I think it took a night's sleep for me to really comprehend how offensive Karl Rove's comments yesterday were (Video here and here, text here)

Bush (through Scott McClellan) has flatly refused to repudiate Rove's remarks, so they are his position until he says otherwise.

It's becoming increasingly clear that anything anybody says about either Iraq or the greater war on terrorism that doesn't follow administration orthodoxy is tantamount to treason in their eyes. This is faaaar worse than anything Dick Durbin said. Needless to say, it's the most Unamerican statement made by a major Washington player since Trent Lott went to a birthday party.

Ideally, Rove must either apologize or resign. But to do either would require something possessed by Durbin, Dan Rather, and even Lott, but not by him: shame.
