you've heard everything something like this comes up. I mean, I know the man has no shame, but really. Poor Prezzie, the big, bad Dems forced him to go to war to soon. Obviously, the candidates running for the Republican nomination are out to win, even if they have to portray the Shrub as even more incompetent than he's already perceived to be.

No lie is to big or too brazen if it gets the candidate elected. I'm thinking of cuss words that haven't even been invented yet

The Washington Post article you linked to is getting a lot of notice in the liberal blogosphere for the reporter's inability to come straight out and call Rove a liar.  There's something strange going on in modern journalism.  I guess it's some sort of bizarre method of seeming fair and balanced, but when faced with competing claims, they just put the two claims together in the same article without any sort of fact-checking.  Paul Krugman, the NYTimes columnist once had a column in which he claimed that if President Bush or a top Republican suddenly announced that the world was flat the newspapers would run a story with that quote and a quote by a Democrat claiming the opposite with the headline "Shape of the Earth in Dispute" or something similar.

Andy Card, who was the White House chief of staff at the time, was the first to dispute Rove's version of history.  On MSNBC's Morning Joe, he was interviewed by host Joe Scarborough...

   Scarborough: “We have to start with something that we all were talking about a couple days ago where Karl Rove went on Charlie Rose and he blamed the Democrats for pushing him and the president into war. Is that how it worked?”

   Card: ” Uh… [laughter] that is not the way it worked. [snip]

   “Karl is very smart, sometimes his brain gets ahead of his mouth - and sometimes his mouth gets ahead of his brain.”
