Scarborough, "The Pillsbury JoeBoy" gets it.
Well most of it anyway. Check out this idea on Joe's blog.
But there is nothing funny about the Republican's treatment of the Rove affair.I would merely point out to the Pillsbury JoeBoy that if he can call for a Democrats resignation, in theory, then it is not a silly suggestion for John Kerry. As they say, "What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander."
Assuming Rove leaked a CIA agent's identity to Time Magazine, GOP leaders should be lining up to condemn the White House Wizard's actions.
Why? Because they would have shredded a Democratic administration for outing an undercover CIA agent during a time of war.
Imagine Bill Clinton's top political advisor leaking a CIA agent's identity because of the actions of the agent's spouse. Republicans, including yours truly, would have been demanding that official's resignation at once.
But with one of their own in the White House, Republicans are instead focusing their attacks on former ambassador Joe Wilson.
Though Wilson is an easy target for writing a book filled with lies with the ironic title "The Politics of Truth," do Republicans suggest that a CIA agent can be called out during a time of war because of their spouse's misdeeds?
If so, it is a frightening new world for undercover agents who are paid to protect our country.
