Roasting Rove on an open fire

Would a Rove by any other name smell as foul?

Aside: Dan Froomkin started the Shakespeare mess... Or his headline writer did.

Karl Rove is now on the defensive, and I don't think this could have broken at a worse time for the administration. They may have 2-3 appointments, including Chief 4 appointments with that notch!, and now Rove is a spotlight. The Dems can still blow this, as only Dems can, but Bush and McClellan did say that a leak should resign. And, David Gregory grilled McClellan burgers today, Scott the PR secretary had said Rove was not involved.

You've got a public record out there. Do you stand by your remarks from that podium or not?

MCCLELLAN: I'm well aware, like you, of what was previously said. And I will be glad to talk about it at the appropriate time. The appropriate time is when the investigation...

Read the whole transcript. Not pleasant. Re-enact with classic, Shakespearean actors! LINK.

Not since 1864 has a McClellan been so roasted!
