… there is no principle of governance so sacred to a conservative that it cannot be sacrificed to an outcome which supports the kind of prudish, narrow-minded, mean-spirited, medieval social policies that are their stock-in-trade. Mark B. Jacobs
True to the spirit of Mark’s sentiment about conservatives, its finally been publically revealed that Turd Blossom Karl Rove is evil.
The scandal as I understand it boils down to this: while the Republican party was spindoctoring intelligence to fool Americans into thinking that Iraq was building a weapons of mass-destruction program (so they could justify an invasion and control more oil, nevermind the thousands that would have to die in the process), a bold former U.S. ambassador (working on behalf of the CIA) was brave enough to speak the truth in the face of their lie. In retaliation, Karl Rove revealed to the press that the brave man’s wife was a CIA agent (in order to discredit the truth by implying that the brave man was incompetent and got his job through nepotism), thereby exposing her to possible assassination during her missions.
Now the press speculates on about whether this most repugnant of American specimens will be fired by the monkey whom he placed in the White House. The real question is: does it matter?
I think modus operandi of the American conservatives has already demonstrated that they lie, cheat, and steal shamelessly and daily for their own benefit. So, if Karl Rove was fired and publically humiliated by Bush, does anyone believe it would actually stop the conservatives from making use of his evil genius to place more intolerant, hateful Republicans into political office across America?
Being surprised that Rove did something immoral and illegal is like being surprised that birds fly.
