Two striking (to me) observations about Tuesday’s NY Times story on Plamegate:
1. Not a single Republican legislator is willing to say, even off the record, that if Rove unmasked a CIA undercover officer he ought to be fired. Now that’s what I call message discipline.
2. On the other hand, and by contrast with Red Blogistan, not a single Republican legislator is willing to say, even off the record, that no crime was committed, it’s all a partisan witch-hunt, the prosecutor is out of control, etc.
Mr. Rove seems to have contracted a case of political leprosy.
