The Stoner Pundit

Choose you're own slogan for this site, because I'm too stoned to figure one out: Higher Discourse for Higher Minded People. cool. way cool. Last week's news reported to you tomorrow. I'm fairly combative for a pothead. I've found a friend in weed. Pothead slackers unite! Because being a pothead is way better for society than being a loser meth addict.

Karl Rove

It's amazing to me how the media and Dems got into such a froth over the mere possibility that Karl Rove outed CIA agent Valerie Plame. Not all the evidence was in and they were going nuts calling for his resignation. Like it would make that big of a difference. Don't you think Bush would call him up from time to time anyways for advice on how to handle various political issues? It turns out even if he had outed her, it possibly (should I say probably) isn't a crime, because she's not "deep cover".

Is Rove the smartest political strategist out there? Was this all his ingenius master plan? Any intelligent journalist might have figured out that Rove knew he wasn't culpable when he allowed Matt Cooper to break their confidentiality agreement. If you don't have anything to hide then why hide it? This is something most journalists (and Dems) don't seem to understand. I don't know what they're smoking, but I want some. It's got to be some of that good Maui Wowie or Panama Red.

I'd talk more about this but other more motivated, non-stoned bloggers have put together enough info on "Rovegate 2005".

Instapundit has some good links.

Les Enfants Terrible has a great roundup. Here and here and here.
