Attack Dogs Unleashed on Rove

From Holden:

Karl Rove is going down. Soon, maybe Wednesday.

How do I know? Both Larua Bush and Mary Cheney attacked his “blame the gays” strategy on national teevee, with Cheney actually mentioning his name in her bit.

The first lady told “Fox News Sunday” that she thinks the American people want a debate on the issue. But, she said, “I don’t think it should be used as a campaign tool, obviously.”


Asked Sunday about reports that White House political adviser Karl Rove and other Republicans want to use the issue to mobilize conservatives for the midterm election, [Mary Cheney] said she hoped “no one would think about trying to amend the Constitution as a political strategy.”

“I certainly don’t know what conversations have gone on between Karl and anybody up on the Hill,” Cheney added in her appearance on Fox. “But you know, what I can say is look, amending the Constitution with this amendment, this piece of legislation, is a bad piece of legislation. It is writing discrimination into the Constitution, and, as I say, it is fundamentally wrong.”
