Morford on Rove: "The Dark Lord Will Reign..." hilarious and biting
The dark lord will reign even if overthrown
Mark Morford, SF Chronicle
Wednesday, July 20, 2005

...snip...but you gotta read the whole thing

But despite all my doubts, the astonishing news remains: Rove, a.k.a. Bush's Brain, a.k.a. the Architect, a.k.a. the most powerful and brilliant and deeply unlikable political thug most people have barely heard of because he's just that kind of secretive nefarious genius the likes of which makes women recoil and flowers wilt and moderate politicians break out in hives, well, Rove might have stepped over the line just far enough to end his current reign as Dark Lord of Shrubtown.

In sum, one could argue that Rove, as part of a multitentacled stratagem to help Bush lie America into war, intentionally blew the cover of an underground CIA agent (Valerie Plame) and did so merely as revenge, as a smear tactic against Plame's husband, who dared suggest, way back when BushCo was downright desperate to mangle CIA intelligence and fabricate any excuse possible to force us into this unwinnable Iraq war, that Saddam might not actually have any WMD at all.

That's the argument in a nutshell: that Rove allegedly committed a treasonous act, a dire breach of national security -- not that it's all that difficult to do anymore -- and therefore Rove should be fired like right now and maybe even thrown in jail.

Doesn't that sound delicious? Like balm to your progressive and hope- deprived soul? Could Rove actually be forced to resign? Be fired? Imprisoned? Could this signal the end of one of the ugliest reigns of strategic terror in American politics?

1. Scary And Probably Accurate
The way Dubya has been and will stack the courts...

Even if good liberal and moderate liberals regain control and start passing laws to try and undo the damage, a few rogues (conservatives) will challenge those laws and the courts Dubya stacked will say Congress (government) does not have the constitutional power to pass those laws.
