I Get Letters: Why Aren’t You Talking About Rove & Plame?

From RWN reader SeattleLiberal…

Mr. Hawkins,

Over the course of the past few days, you have quickly any and all blog comment areas concerning Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, et al.

Is the heat getting to be a bit much for your tastes. I can totally understand your feelings, as the scope and breadth of this scandal is just begining.

I think you do your readers, both supporters and adversaries a big disservice.

Much to the chagrin of social conservatives, this story has legs, so to speak.

Have a great day!


This is worth addressing because the lefty blogs are still filling inches and inches of blog space daily on this topic, hearts palpitating madly as they dream of seeing Karl Rove frog marched off to a cell!

Ooooh, it’s just so exciting — oh wait, it’s actually wonky and boring.

At this point, the whole Rove/Plame ball of wax has degenerated into nothing but wild speculation and spin based on unverifiable leaks. All the liberal blogs talking about this story sound exactly the same and even the conservative blogs responding to all this pointless minutiae are so dull that I usually wake up from a sound sleep 15 minutes after trying to wade through a paragraph or two.

What it all comes down to is that most conservatives seem to think, based on the available evidence, that Rove did nothing illegal or unethical and liberals think the opposite. That was the case two weeks ago, it’s the case today, and that’s how things will likely stand until Patrick Fitzgerald finishes his investigation.

So until there’s some actual news of substance to report, I’ve relegated the whole Rove/Plame story to the “Dullsville file” and don’t plan on putting everyone to sleep by pontificating endlessly on the newest minor details released to the press via anonymous leak…
