I like the Washington Monthly, but ...
Why does Steve Benen post
on Karl Rove?
Rove said this. Rove said that. Rove is being inconsistent - or worse. Rove is lying. Rove is accusing Democrats of things that Rove engineered when in the White House. Etc.
It's as if Rove is expected to be an impartial observer. He's totally a Republican spokesman. Would you expect a spokesman for Ford to say nice things about Toyota? Same thing.
I read Benen every day. His prodigious output is almost staggering sometimes. But what bugs me about him is his staunch refusal to call a spade a spade. To him, Republicans are always "deceiving," "dissembling" or uttering "half-truths" or "falsehoods."
No. They're lying, and he needs to say so. He won't, and it's infuriating.
