Karl Rove, American hero
It's no secret that much of Fox News programming belongs to the realm of tortured reasoning -- repeated cruelty to logic that is part of the job description of being a Bush administration supporter. So it's hardly surprising host John Gibson was forced to resort to the most outlandish argument to justify Karl Rove's latest shenanigans.
DemBloggers have the audio and video, but here's the gist of it: Karl Rove deserves a "medal" -- even if he gets fired -- for outing Valerie Plame aka "little wifey" for sending a known "peacenik" Joe Wilson to Niger. In other words, she was trying to "influence national policies" because she knew Wilson would use this opportunity to "completely knock down any notion Saddam wanted Niger's nuke bomb making stuff."
It's hard work, as our President would say, being a Republican these days.
But here's the really interesting bit. The transcript on the Fox News website excises the phrase "little wifey" from Gibson's rant. (Compare the audio/video with the official transcript here). Hey, even Security Moms have their pride, y'know. Damn those feminists!
