It was announced today that the House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed
that treasonous, notorious, fat White House fuck
former presidential adviser and current pundit
Karl Rove in the matter of the Governor Don Siegelman case down in Alabama
-- a case that has Rove's traitorous, blood-stained handprints all over it. Good on Chairman John Conyers for attempting to bring that bloated, bloviating slime-mold into the sunlight on this issue, but will it work? It seems to me that Harriet Miers and Josh Bolten have successfully ignored Congressional subpoenas for quite some time now. Won't KKKarl use the same stalling technique in an attempt to play out the string until the 2008 elections and hope for the best in '09? Virtually no one in the Bush administration has yet been held to account for any of the myriad crimes and misdemeanors that have been committed on their watch, why would Karl be the first?
Still, I hold out some modicum of hope -- unreasonable though it probably is -- that we'll get to see him have to answer a few hard questions under oath and cover himself in flopsweat in public at some point in the near future. Handcuffed and frog-marched off to stoney lonesome would be even better, but even I'm not that
much of an optimist. Not yet, anyway.
