Another Day, Another Slimy Karl Rove Plot

From the article "Rove counting heads on the Senate Judiciary Committee" over at

The White House has been twisting arms to ensure that no Republican member votes against President Bush in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation of the administration's unauthorized wiretapping.

Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for re-election in November.


"He's [Rove] lining them up one by one," another congressional source said.

Mr. Rove is leading the White House campaign to help the GOP in November’s congressional elections. The sources said the White House has offered to help loyalists with money and free publicity, such as appearances and photo-ops with the president.

God damn that guy is a sleaze.

Hey (R)s -- don't protect the Constitution or serve your constiuencies or nothin' like that, now. Party before country. SEIG HEIL!

BTW - what GOP member *really* wants to be photographed with Bush for use in November elections? Is he serious? Dude can barely keep his head above the 40% approval rating. Lame-O.

As far as witholding campaign dollars goes... can anyone say "Solution To This Particular Problem: Publicly Financed Elections"...?

Time for a plug.
