    I rarely link to my own stuff, but I wrote a comment I think is worth reading , over at Scoop’s.

    It concerns the story coming out yesterday about Karl Rove being the “architect” of the coverup of actual WMD finds by the military in 2004.

    Check it out at:

    I’ve been seeing other posts about this around the Internet today. Enraging.

    A smart guy who comments at Scoop’s pointed out something about the article on Rove being behind the soft-pedaling (if it was a “coverup” it was the most porous coverup evah) of the WMD find. He said it was saved and dumped now to cause infighting among conservatives, in aid of helping Dems election chances.

    Pretty good concept. I told him conservatives beat on Rove 24/7 anyway, so I’m not sure if it’ll have much impact, but he could be right.

    I’ve said forever that at the end, GWB acted like a man held hostage. The GOP decided, at some point, that the end game of the Left was the one they wanted, too.

    That’s a pretty apt analogy. The GOP saw the end of their control was near (thanks largely to their weak response to the constant leftist attacks), so they all bailed into the private sector.

    Glad you got it taken care of before barack and ebola, when the walls fell.

    It’s been an adventure. Left me with this weird calm feeling though. Even my mouth-foaming hate of Democrats and progressivism seem muted. I don’t even scream at idiots who block my line of fire in Mechwarrior Online anymore.

    Oh, shit… don’t tell me I’m developing perspective…
