Lest We Forget

Frank Rich had a great Op-Ed piece in the NYT today, mostly regarding Cindy Sheehan, though it mentioned the name 'Karl Rove'. Between Ms. Sheehan, John Bolton and John Roberts - the Bush administration has effectively squashed any Karl Rove/Valerie Plame discussions. So much for the 'liberal media'. Though Rich never utters the words 'liberal media', he clearly refers to it in the contrast.

Cindy Sheehan's bashers, you'll notice, almost never tell her son's story. They are afraid to go there because this young man's life and death encapsulate not just the noble intentions of those who went to fight this war but also the hubris, incompetence and recklessness of those who gave the marching orders.

I felt bad when I came across Rove's name - mainly because *I* had forgotten the entire CIA outing incident. Bogged down in other crappy news and the lack of any public follow-up on Karl's dirty deeds, there is no way Middle America will remember ANYTHING either. The man has already walked. In-fucking-credible.
