SOP for GOP: deny, distract, discredit

The Raw Story has posted the RNC's talking points on the Rove case. Among the many gems that you're sure to hear on the airwaves this week:
  • Once Again, Democrats are Engaging in Blatant Political Attacks
  • Karl Rove Has Fully Complied With This Investigation For More Than A Year And Has Permitted Any Reporter He Spoke With About Joe Wilson To Discuss Their Conversations
  • Wilson Tied To The 2004 Kerry Campaign For President

So it's not about whether or not Rove committed treason by identifying an undercover government operative; it's about why Wilson's untrustworthy to begin with. We're about one step away from "Plame deserved it."
