The Fifth Horseman: Keep your eyes on the ball, people!

Keep your eyes on the ball, people!

Well, Bush has officially appointed John Bolton as ambassador to the U.N.

This is bad for the U.N. and American diplomacy, blah, blah, blah....you get the picture. I'm not going to focus on Bolton today.

Why? I'll tell you why.

This appointment is simply another ploy distract attention from the real scandal: Karl Rove.

The early nomination of John G. Roberts to the Supreme Court failed to distract the public from the Rove scandal enough, so the administration is trying this new ploy.

Don't fall for it.

Sure, Bolton is an awful choice, but at this point there is little to nothing any of us can do to stop Bolton's nomination. All of us principled left-wingers would be wise to focus our wrath on something that we can make a difference with: Karl Rove. We have to keep the pressure, and the main attention of the masses, on the immoral antics of Karl Rove.

We finally have a chance to do some damage to Rove and the administration: let's not squander it. Let's hound Turdblossom into an early and unexpected retirement.
