The Dark Lord, Revisited
By Cassandra D
So Dan Rather is finally really gone from CBS.
What led to his departure? The infamous forged Bush National Guard memos.
Rehashing the CBS mess dredges up all sorts of unpleasant memories, but it is also a cautionary tale for those who are opposed to the Bush administration and its dream of a perpetual Republican majority.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I strongly suspect that Rove was behind the forgeries. After all, the content was pretty much truth. Bush did weasel out of his service. And what better way to make the public doubt the veracity of Bush's weaselhood but to put the truth in a forged document?
Rove is the same guy who placed bugs in his own candidate's office, in order to make it look like the other guy was crooked.
Rove is the sneakiest sneaky bastard of them all. I'm not the only one who thinks it's a good bet Rove was the mastermind behind the CBS forgeries.
What does it mean for us now? Since Rove no longer has to fear becoming jail meat, he is no doubt getting back in touch with his inner sewer rat.
