Karl Rove, the insidious little monster who holds a position of absolute political power inside the Bush White House is out strong-arming Republicans to support Bush's illegal wiretap program.
Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for re-election in November.So there was some question that Rove wouldn't play dirty on this one?
Those deemed disloyal to Mr. Rove would appear on his blacklist. The sources said dozens of GOP members in the House and Senate are on that list.And if that doesn't work, he'll have you kneecapped.
"Well, I didn't like what Mr. Rove said, because it frames terrorism and the issue of terrorism and everything that goes with it, whether it's the renewal of the Patriot Act or the NSA wiretapping, in a political context," said Sen. Chuck Hagel, Nebraska Republican.I only have one question. Why does Karl Rove still have a security clearance and a job in government? If anyone else was under suspicion of outing a covert US intelligence agent, they'd be selling pencils on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
