SO WHAT DO THESE GUYS HAVE IN COMMON?
So, What DO Paul Harvey and Karl Rove have in common? Besides the fact that both are right wing nutjobs? Both are in serious trouble this weekend! Let's start with the 85 yr. old Harvey, who recently signed a 10 yr., 100 million dollar contract with ABC:
In one of the most disgusting diatribes heard on radio in recent memory, Harvey not only waxed nostalgic for biological weapons, slavery, and genocide, but lamented the fact we haven't used nuclear weapons in Afghanistan or Iraq. He managed to insult Aboriginal Americans, Black Americans, and the entire middle east in one 2 min. commentary. Quoth Harvey: "Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and into this continent by giving small pox infected blankets to native Americans. Yes, that was biological warfare. And we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever. And we grew prosperous. And, yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves."

And on to Mr. Rove:
It seems that we now know conclusively who outed CIA agent Valery Plame. Guess what? Just as everyone expected, it was Karl (I don't swallow, I spit) Rove. That according to the folks at Time Magazine, who are preparing to turn over all information to the Special Prosecuter. And the Chicago Tribune is speculating, based on the large numbers of Administration officials (including Bush and Chaney) being interviewed, that S.P. Patrick Fitzgerald has expanded his investigation to conspiracy to leak Plames identity, and a possibly an illegal White House cover up. Can you say WATERGATE?
