Rove Calls Lieberman - Then the Lying Begins
As a recent comment to this blog indicated, there is a difference between suspecting something is true, and having no doubt about it. I vowed to be more careful with that phrase in the future, but here I am using it only a few hours later. Below is a link to a story about Karl Rove calling Joe Lieberman today. A description of that call was given by one of his campaign officials, and then another Lieberman official and the White House said that description was not accurate. They claimed Karl Rove just called Lieberman for personal reasons. I have no doubt that this is total BS. We have an election in less than 3 months. If the House or Senate swings away from the Republicans, people like Karl Rove will actually have to start applying for a presidential pardon, if he hasn't already. The White House is currently trying to work out a legal escape hatch for some of their behavior that ranges up to war crimes. That would affect Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Gonzales for starters. The notion that Karl Rove dropped what he is doing today to chat with Joe Lieberman for personal reasons is ludicrous. Ahh, wait, once again I've been schooled by one of the evil greats. Karl Rove can describe the call - which involved Lieberman's run as an independent - as being for personal reasons, because Karl Rove's personal liberty could be involved. Especially if we take a look at what he and his wretched buddies in the White House did to get us into Iraq, and a thousand other twisted, sick, and perhaps criminal moves. Rove is incorrigible, and I guess I am too, because rather than avoiding the "no doubt" phrase, I'm using it again: The White House and Lieberman camp's denials about the conversation are not truthful. I have no doubt that Karl Rove called Lieberman about the campaign - not about how his family's doing.
