Much has been said around the Blogosphere about Karl Rove's alleged role in outing a CIA agent. (Of course, as we know - but not that the MSM will report - no law has been broken, regardless of the source of the leak.) Rush spent about two hours on this non-issue hyperbole and diversion by the MSM and Libs today.

I can't help but thinking, though, that The Mastermind is once again performing a rope-a-dope - setting up the frothing MSM and lackey Libs with just enough rope to hang themselves on this issue. Consider, perhaps: 1) Rove knows he is not the source of the leak, 2) Rove knows the true source, and 3) the true source would prove an embarassment to either the MSM, or Democrats (or both). Implausible? Maybe, but maybe not. I'll just throw it out there. Time will tell...

  1. I agree; the Karl Rove issue is…well, not an issue. “Diversion” is putting it nicely.

    By the way…Missouri bloggers ROCK!!! (I hail from Poplar Bluff, a good two hours south of you.) So, gratuitous linkage is in order.

    I like the way you think and you may very well be right.

    Chip, the issue is not that Rove broke any laws… it’s that Bush vowed to sack anyone responsible for the leak. Those who are up in arms over this are simply appealing to Bush to follow through with his threat.

    It doesn’t matter, anyway. The continuous jedi-mind-trick continues…

    I’ll beat a dead horse some more:

    With all due respect, whether or not Rove broke any laws is the KEY issue.

    Bush did NOT promise “to sack anyone responsible for the leak.” Bush promised to deal with anyone who broke any laws (or, committed a criminal act, depending on which statement to which you refer – though both are equivalent). Do I need to find the original quotes to put to rest the issue of Bush’s “vow”?

    If the “leak” is not a criminal act, Rove broke no laws (even if he was the original source of the leak, an allegation that is becoming increasingly LESS likely), thus the media are painting Bush into a non-existent box.
