So, the Republican party is doing its best to muddy the waters on Rove’s role in outing Valerie Plame. The Washington Post’s Jim VandeHei has a good summary: GOP on offense in defense of Rove.
Even more interesting (in the same way that a pustulant abscess is interesting, at least for a pathologist who specializes in such things) is this copy of the the Republican talking points on the story, as distributed by Carolyn Weyforth, director of television for the Republican National Committee: GOP talking points on Rove.
Most of the talking points are either outright lies or blatantly misleading, which I guess is not exactly a shocking state of affairs, but still. Gah.
