Shakespeare's Sister has a provocative take on the Rove comments and the storm they generated. Go here for the details.
Today, the RNC issued talking points obviously constructed in support of Rove’s statement, in addition to an attack ad against Dick Durbin based on his Gitmo comments.
And so the red herring is cast ashore for all to admire.
This is their defensive play—deflect all interest in the Downing Street Documents by some controversy and force liberals to defend themselves…again.
It’s nothing but subterfuge, designed to detract from this major issue with their usual disingenuous bullshit. The Good News: This is their last line of defense against something that’s big and bothersome for them, so we’re on the right track. The Bad News: This line of defense has worked for them before and it will work again, if we don’t call them on it.
