Rove and Gonzales:Two Fiends in Two Weeks
OK, maybe "fiends" is too strong a word, or maybe "fiends" isn't strong enough. Besides, one can never be too sure that Karl won't rise again in some ghastly new form, such as a campaign consultant for Mitt Romney or similar. Shy of a dousing with holy water and a holly stake through the heart, one can never be too complacent about him. But if I were the Democrats, I'ld find some way to clone or hire Karl. He has morals that would give a sewer rat pause, but he no doubt was effective.
Meanwhile, the AG is resigning (under the same cloud). Should we feel sorry for the guy who tried his damnedest to toss out the bill of rights? To eavesdrop on US citizens without warrant? To deny the right of habeus corpus? Should we care to where he shuffles off? I think not. Just keep on movin' lawyer man.
But just in case these two end up drowning in a vat of holy water or get skewered by a truckload of lumber, I am setting aside two crocodile tears for them in advance.
