The Bottom Line on Rovegate:

Via the bombastic and crass yet loveable Bartcop:

Bart, what law or laws did Rove break by referring to Valerie Plame?
Did you know that she wasn't a covert agent?

Carson, I'm not a lawyer.
I don't know if Rove committed a crime, but I know he lied,
I know Bush lied and I know Scotty McClellan lies every day.

For two years, they said, "We're not involved."
Then, after getting caught, they changed that to, "It's not really a crime."
If it's not a crime, why lie and hide the facts that aren't crimes?

It's like Karl Rove robbed the bank, then after getting caught, they claim
the money he stole was counterfeit - proving he's an honest man.
No, honest men don't rob the bank and then lie about it..

This is the bottom line in this whole sordid affair. This administration told a baldfaced lie to the American people, and they got caught. Aside from the 30% of Americans who would believe anything the president if he said he could lay golden eggs, the vast majority aren't buying it.

The only strategy left for this Administration is a distraction ploy...I predict a major "crisis" this week if the Roberts nomination doesn't push Rove from the front pages.

The Rove Roundup

As per Amalia's request, I attempted to do a roundup of the Karl Rove scandal only to find that the mighty Cursor has done my work for me. Here's the link:

Read It:

As for me, the following exchange between the president's press secretary and the typically comatose Washington press corps was enough to get me all hot and bothered:

Q: Scott, can I ask you this: Did Karl Rove commit a crime?

MCCLELLAN: Again, David, this is a question relating to a ongoing investigation, and you have my response related to the investigation. And I don't think you should read anything into it other than: We're going to continue not to comment on it while it's ongoing.

Q: Do you stand by your statement from the fall of 2003, when you were asked specifically about Karl and Elliot Abrams and Scooter Libby, and you said, "I've gone to each of those gentlemen, and they have told me they are not involved in this"?

MCCLELLAN: And if you will recall, I said that, as part of helping the investigators move forward on the investigation, we're not going to get into commenting on it. That was something I stated back near that time as well.

Q: Scott, this is ridiculous. The notion that you're going to stand before us, after having commented with that level of detail, and tell people watching this that somehow you've decided not to talk. You've got a public record out there. Do you stand by your remarks from that podium or not?

MCCLELLAN: I'm well aware, like you, of what was previously said. And I will be glad to talk about it at the appropriate time. The appropriate time is when the investigation...

Q: (inaudible) when it's appropriate and when it's inappropriate?

How anyone could have any faith in this administration at this point is beyond me.
