The now infamous Karl Rove quote, as reported in a recent CNN.com article:
"Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."
As Harry Shearer observantly pointed out on his radio program Le Show, the Democrats who called for an apology from Rove failed to call attention to a glaring omission in Rove's comments: it is a documented fact that the Conservatives had been preparing for war before 9/11.
Another Rove-related excerpt from the article:
"He added that the Democratic Party made the mistake of calling for 'moderation and restraint' after the terrorist attacks."
Moderation and restraint, aye? How ironic that a Conservative would criticize a Liberal for showing moderation and restraint. The therapy reference sounds like it could have been lifted from a bombastic "Best of Limbaugh" transcript. I have no idea what the therapy reference was based on, but what difference does it make now? The sound bite has bitten. And who really has time to fact check anymore? For Pete's sake, the State Department has sunk to misquoting Bono.
