Rally around the Rove
July 14, 2005
The list of steamed up -- but sadly not steamy -- quotes released by the RNC is fount of valuable knowledge. Let's see, what have we learned today:
NRSC Chairwoman Elizabeth Dole (R-NC): Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Partisan Attacks Against Karl Rove Are Out Of Control And Entirely Inappropriate. He Is A Distinguished Member Of The White House And He Is My Friend.Ã¢â‚¬ÂFirst Laura Bush and now Liddy Dole. Karl Rove may be a nerd, but clearly of the Austin Powers variety.
Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN): Ã¢â‚¬Å“We Have Enough To Do In The Senate In Minding Our Own Business Than To Be Sticking Our Noses Into Someone ElseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Business. Everyone Needs To Cool The Rhetoric, Focus On The Business Of The People, And Allow The Investigation To Run Its Course.Ã¢â‚¬ÂInvestigating violations of national security is not the business of Congress, which is best left to deal with really important stuff -- like making it illegal to burn a certain piece of cloth.
House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO): Ã¢â‚¬Å“Karl Rove Has Fully Cooperated In Any Investigation, And For More Than A Year Now Has Permitted Investigators To Talk To Him.Ã¢â‚¬ÂKarl Rove is nice enough to allow investigators to talk to him -- unlike the rest of us who have no choice in the matter.
NRCC Chairman Tom Reynolds (R-NY): Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Extreme Left Is Once Again Attempting To Define The Modern Democrat Party By Rabid Partisan Attacks, Character Assassination And Endless Negativity. And As Has Become Their Custom, The Rest Of The Democrat Party Is Standing By Silently.Ã¢â‚¬ÂRepublicans only have the best interests of the Democratic Party in mind, as in, "It's for your own good, dear." A truly Christian attitude toward what is an organization infested by flesh-eating sharks.
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX): Ã¢â‚¬Å“This Is Typical Of The Democrats. They Smell Blood And They Act Like Sharks.And finally: Republicans Like To Capitalize Everything -- Just In Case Stupid Folks Like Us Are Reading Impaired.
