The problem with Passion

Apparently Newsweek is set to reveal that Karl Rove had a large and direct roll in the outing of Valerie Plame. David Corn writes about this in an article for Common Dreams, and, with traditional Liberal mean spiritedness, he chortles and chuckles his way through the story.

I hope this story turns out to be false, but for a moment let's assume it's true. And let's put it in the proper context. The United States is AT WAR with an enemy determined to see us COMPLETELY DESTROYED! President Bush saw that the next battlefield would be, and should be, Iraq! And Joseph Wilson, the Gigelo Ambassador, was making it harder for President Bush to do his job (for those of you who don't know, Apparently Wilson got his job, in part, because of his wife's connections).

So Karl Rove apparently let some information flow that he really shouldn't have. While he may have to suffer some consequences for his mistake, should we conservatives really get all that bent out of shape? He did what he did out of a love of his nation and a desire to support his Commander in Chief. So while he should take whatever lumps he's got coming to him, I think the Conservative Movement should continue to stand by and support Mr. Rove.

Besides, continuing to support Rove will DRIVE LIBERALS CRAZY! And that's just good fun.
