Rove's Remarks Were a Trap
Glenn Reynolds thinks Rove's recent remarks were a well-laid trap. I completely agree. Think about it.
1) The story becomes a story not when Rove speaks but when Democrats get angry.
2) Now that it is a story, Republicans can run around quoting all the stupid things groups like MoveOn, people like Michael Moore and other far lefties have said about 9/11 and our duty to respond with force.
3) This in turn links responsible, mainstream Democrats with the tiny minority of fringe lefties who treated 9/11 as an excuse to criticize America.
4) So now, instead of arguing about how they want to better defend us, Democrats are left having to prove whether or not they want to defend us at all.
Next time Rove opens his mouth, Democrats should just ignore whatever comes out.
