Seems like all you hear now a days is Karl this and Karl
that. It has taken a time of year that is generally slow in our nationÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s capital
and turned the heat up to rival that of the hot DC summers.
Turned up even more is the spin the right is putting onto
this story. Before KarlÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s name was ever mentioned to the press and when
speculation was just going on, it was nothing for the White House to lay strong
warnings to whoever leaked information to the press. Now that the American
public knows BushÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s right hand man indeed talked to the press about the case the
tone has changed. It is now a eerie resemblance of White House press briefings
in the early 70ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s, a time when another scandal rocked the office of President.
Scott McClellan has been getting grilled hard and long this
week by the White House press core. In a sudden turn of events Monday, the
robotic reporters that reminded you of something out of Stepford Wives seemed to
have been replaced with actual reporters. They have hammered away trying to get
McClellan to break his streak of silence on this issue, the streak that has only
been around for a few days.
So why should something be done about Karl Rove right now?
Well even though he has not been convicted or even charged with a crime, there
is still a question of our national security at stake here. It is evident that
Karl Rove talked to reporters about Valerie Plame but he did not mention her by
name. He did say that Joe Wilsons wife who worked for the CIA on WMD sent Wilson
on the trip to Niger. AHHH a clue Sherlock. Instead of just saying a WMD analyst
at Langley sent the former Ambassador to Niger, he had to offer that extra spicy
piece of gossip that it was also WilsonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s wife.
