Looks like Karl Rove will have to face the music. So will Scott Jennings. All roads lead to Rove.

More power to Congress. Karl Rove's fingerprints are all over the place on this and other issues. Justice needs to prevail and all the corruption needs to be if not stopped, at least minimized.

I heard about this on NPR too, so I guess they won't be able to chalk this up to "bad reporting" on Truthout this time.

I hereby command from the depths of hell, the wretched soul of Richard Millhouse Nixon to rise and haunt those who would follow in your ways. Rise and haunt Rove, Karl, and tell him what you learned immediately after your resignation speech. Arise and tell Cheney, Dick, that he missed a spot. Arise and haunt and torment and drag down to the depths of hell with you, Dubya, and you tell him The KB is now a Man. And will always be Virtue.

Now finally, if Rove obeys the subpoena, we will see a skilled liar at work.
Gonzales has not mastered the coverup of his instinct to lie as have Master Liar Rove and Master Liar Snow.
That is, if Rove feels like lying at the senate building. Their dogma and doctrine is that "executive privilege" (does not appear in constitution) gives them the right to lie from the
White What House or lie from the congress building.
Since he likes cuddling up to Master Dick's Liar Crew (a.k.a. VP's Office) he will most likely choose to continue to lie from the
White What House.
But who knows, he may go over and give the congress a few laughs and show the world the difference between silk and sackcloth. Rove is a silky liar and Gonzales is a sackcloth liar.
Bring on the high fashion!

The big question is when is the MSM going to report any of this ?
Or are they going to wait until inherent contempt charges are brought against Gonzoid and attack Conyers instead?
As long as the MSM is silent and Fox keeps on labeling everyone with a "D" (like Specter), they will present this as nothing more than a partisan hit.
Nothing to see here folks.

Who says the neoCons of the
United Red States of Amurka are not creative? Look what has happened to "better red than dead"? Gotta admit they have given red new meaning!
"The reds are coming", "the reds are coming", has been given new meaning too. Yep, a la Evangelist Haggard, Jeffie Gannon-Guckert, Vitter, and the boy chaser man Mark Foley from Florida, who went into
rehab redhab to recover redcover from what the redrobed Joker Man did to him.
Even so, Red State Bloggers do not like the image of the Department of
Justice Just Us via Wierd Al G any more. But why not?
The answer is not because of ethics and morality, but instead is because the quality of lying is so low grade! It is not up to vintage quality red.
So they want to be even more creative and give new meaning to red and send Fredo on hiatus.
But if they are red serious, I suggest that they have Fredo consider a Hunt For Red October with Dick "Hair Trigger" Cheney. Even Wierd Al G ("Fredo") will get that message. He will move forthwith to the Red Sea where Halliburton has gone.
A Red October Surprise has been delivered by Karl Rove operatives at the Department of
Justice Just Us to Michael Moore! Yep, a subpoena!
Get out your red dress momma neoCon, cause Red Rover is putting on the ritz and greasin up the grits to paint the town red.

This swinger state down here has a Red Governor that has me totally befuddled.
First, he gets rid of all the touchstone machines, putting in verifiable paper ballots with scanners.
Second, he is putting up a solar collector system on the State building(s?)
C, he reinstated the death penalty early to cause a premature debate so the pro-death don't have time to form their arguments and let the recent past fade (recent botched execution)
Weird huh, he doesn't seem like the type but if he keeps it up, he'll be the first R ever I'd ever vote for.

BTW, if Michael plays this right all he should talk about is the movie and our broken healthcare system whenever they ask him a question.
They're going to make a martyr out of him yet, he-he

AND, what are they going to use on the MSM to cover this up ?
Pat Tillman had three patterned shots in his head
Slave labor to build the US embassy in Iraq.
Next, Moore gets sent to the gulags?
There is no wondering when the Nazi takeover is going to be anymore is there ?

I saw that about the slaves building the American Embassy in Baghdad, and wondered why bushies think that is not taking affirmative action back a bit too far. Perhaps that is what the bushies mean by "original intent" when they talk about the US Constitution. And perhaps preznit blush thinks "strict constructionist" means slave labor.
If the Iraqi parliament doesn't watch itself, the neoCons may replace them with slave labor.
It seems to me that the Iraqi's want to subpoena preznit blush to 'splain a few basics:
"Our [soccer] team promised us they would win. Where are the politicians who promised us electricity and cold water?" said Hassan Othman.
(Iraqi Lawmaker Asks For Bush?, emphasis added). Meanwhile back at home the bushies continue shock and awe here:
When asked by Cooper what to make of the FBI director contradicting the Attorney General, Toobin was almost dumbfounded, saying, "it's our job to be jaded, and not to be shocked, but I'm shocked."
(U R Doin A Heckuva Job B. Fuddler, emphasis added). And we find NASA astronauts shit faced at launch but red faced now.
Hell, the reds are everywhere.

I heard that Gonzales orded some lefties arrested because he testified that they were standing on their heads.
They protested saying they were flying the flag upside down not standing on their heads.
He muttered "same difference" as he caught a cab out of town ... he is going to go party with the Iraqi gummit which is taking the war off for a month, but will get back to counting bodies and looking for cold water in September.
