Unless you're currently in a persistent vegetative state, I'm sure you're familiar with the current dust-up involving White House advisor Karl Rove, and his insinuation that liberals' main motivation is to see American troops get killed in Iraq. Apparently, most of the citizens of Left Blogsylvania are just all cranked that they're presenting a united front about this, demanding, yes demanding, that Rove either apologize or resign.
My God, but you people are spineless.
The only demand Dems should be making is that Rove be given a choice to either resign or be fired, and that's it. The man is such a thoroughly loathsome slimeball, Dems shouldn't feel even the slightest bit guilty about wanting his sorry ass tossed.
What good is an apology going to do? Even if he condescends to give one, you know perfectly well it's going to be one of those non-apology, "Well, I'm sorry if what I said was misinterpreted by some people since what they apparently heard is not what I intended to be what I meant." BFD.
Instead, we have a sizable chunk of the liberal community stroking themselves because they're insisting that Rove resign. Or apologize, hey, that'll work, too, if it's not too much trouble unless you're busy or something.
With that kind of lack of spine, it's no wonder that a semi-literate, C-student girly-man like George W. can kick your asses in two straight elections. You folks just never learn, do you?
SEE WHAT I MEAN? Over at AmericaBlog, "Joe in DC" is making the same mistake when he writes:
Rove is a bully. A strategic bully.
The only way to fight a bully is to go for their jugular. Hit back hard and play to win. Clearly, from the reaction on the blogs, we get that.
No, Joe, you don't. As long as you're publicly saying that you'll be satisfied with merely an apology, you still don't get it.
