Church of Coulterstan

No matter what, His omnipotence must not be questioned.

Dissenters must be broken.

True believers sing hosannahs at disserters' scourging.

His omnipotence is pleased.

Rumsfeld approved torture. Damn that Dick Durbin!
Tea Leaves (and a Challenge)

House organ Foxnews starting to speculate on Rove departure. Hmmmm.

Remember, Rove was the second leaker. Rove is a second rank villian in this.

And this:

Someone name Antitroll made a challenge in the comments yesterday regarding the coming smear campaign against Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald, one of course not taken up, so I thank Antitroll for his efforts and post them here again:

When the time comes, Red State, to start attacking Fitzgerald - and it's going to come - you'll be told what to think, but since you wish to portray yourself as an independent thinker, why don't you tell us, right now, what your opinion of Fitzgerald is? That's right, before Rush tells you what to say.

What? What? I can't hear you.

Yes, please do. And, to show faith, I hearby claim to believe what I've heard from both sides already, that Fitzgerald's conservative but fair, and approaches his job with determination and honor. Whatever he reports I will accept without questioning his motives. How about you?

Does the utter disappearance of any images of, any mention of, any word from Glorious Leader Cheney strike anyone else as strange? Is he purposely staying out of the way of Roverage? Remember, people thought his Chief of Staff Scooter Libby was the leaker if it wasn't Rove. Was it Cheney who told Rove about Plame? Cheney's gone behind the curtain. Why?
Freudian Santorum

Time for a little humor; here's Santorum defending his assertion that Liberalism, especially in Boston, leads to immoral sexual acts:

''If you have a world view that I'm describing [about Boston] . . .
that affirms alternative views of sexuality, that can lead to a lot of
people taking it the wrong way," Santorum said.

For more of Santorum spreading his wit and wisdom, read here.
When Do the Fitzgerald Smears Begin?

Cause that's the next logical step:

"Privately, even Rove's staunchest supporters said the situation could explode if federal prosecutors accuse Rove or any other high-level official of committing a crime. William Kristol, a conservative commentator with close White House ties, said it would be hard to imagine a prosecutor conducting an investigation that has landed one reporter in jail and challenged the constitutional rights of the journalism profession without indicting someone. Special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald "is the problem for the White House, and we have no idea what he knows," Kristol said."
Karl Rove, American Hero, American Martyr



Really, which is worse, that they laugh as they make this shit up or that they really believe it?

Political Wrestling

What if George W Bush went before a microphone and cameras this afternoon and said, "I called Karl Rove into my office and asked him to his face whether he in fact compromised nat'l security by divulging the name of a CIA operative and he admitted that he did. I immediately offered him the choice of resigning or being fired, and he chose to retire. I have made it clear that I will not tolerate the violation of nat'l security for petty political gain;" what if?

This would be the ultimate swerve. Bush would come across as a moral stalwart to the rubes, the smart marks on the Right would see it as a work and smirkingly approve, the smart marks on the Left would bitch and moan, appropriately, that this is indeed a work and then be attacked by the Right for kneejerkingly hating everything Bush, and the rubes would agree.

I recognize these speculations don't take into account the legal aspects of Rove admitting he was the leaker, and it certainly doesn't take into account dWarf's famous loyalty to his closest apparatchiks. But Bushco is no doubt planning its exit strategy on Rove and will probably decide they have to play this out in this fashion anyway; what if they get ahead of the curve? I know WE think it's too late to work the swerve, and I hope we're right, but good political wrestling is about suspended disbelief anyway.

Don't Dance the Victory Dance

Look, I'm rooting for a Rove perpwalk as much as the next person.But let's keep perspective. As delicious as Rove's public disgrace would be, what difference is it going to make? Followers of Jesus Cracker, brave Yellow Elephants, courageous members of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders, people who not only buy but can bear to listen to Fat Toby Keith, and most importantly, the moral nullities controlling the US House and Senate, will see in Rove's fall a call for retrenchment much like they feel when the terrorists they've inspired commit inspired bits of terrorism.

And what is to keep Rove from running his adminstration from a jail cell?

And who is to say that a mini-Rove more evil isn't already spawned from the toxins in lizards' vomit?
