76. "It's the system, not one man."
So if Karl Rove died tomorrow, would he be given a pass because "the system" is f'd up?

People are accountable for their actions. Tony Snow was complicit. No one put a gun to his head and said he had to work for a gang of criminals. He could have taken a different path in life and used his talents to work for human rights and social justice. He didn't. He was content to carry water for what is indisputably the most monstrous administration, EVER, in the history of America. That is his legacy. It is what it is.
