The Liberal Hacks at CBS Are at it Again

I've been told that I'm a clearinghouse for all things Jeff Gannon. In that spirit, courtesy of Capt. Willard of the PBR Street Gang, (Fuck that shit! Pabst - Blue - Ribbon! David Lynch, anyone?), here's CBS's Senior Political Editor, Dotty Lynch picking up where Joe Conason leaves off in discussing the Karl Rove/Jeff Gannon connection. (PBR has a funny caption.)

This week Democrats, who have serious case of Rove envy, went a little nuts and started sending around information and graphic pictures of Gannon and his porn Web sites. But it is the more routine part of Gannon's life that deserves serious scrutiny. Planting or even just sanctioning a political operative in the WH press room is a dangerous precedent and Karl Rove's hope to become a respected policymaker will be hampered if the dirty tricks from his political past are more apparent than his desire to spread liberty around the globe.
Dangerous indeed. Unfortunately, these people do more evil before breakfast than most people do all day, so "dangerous" is a sliding scale. I mean, what's worse? A shill in the White House press corps or an incompetent fool as our Secretary of State? How about a torturer as Attorney General? Certainly Jeff Gannon hasn't tortured anyone who didn't pay him to.
