Remember the Wilson's-wife-got-him-the-job bullshit?

Well, dig this, which I got via e-mail from a friend:

My sister-in-law found this on a blog somewhere. I just read Viveca
Novak's explanation in the current TIME, and the whole already smelled
bad. But (if the blog is accurate) it gets worse. . .

BEGINNING of blog piece
"George W. Bush has picked new nominees for the FEC. One is a
Republican, Hans von Spakovsky, whom Ted Kennedy says "may be at the
heart of the political interference that is undermining the [Justice]
Department's enforcement of federal civil laws." And in an
uncharacteristic moment of cheerful bipartisanship, Bush is also
appointing a Democrat, Robert D. Lenhard, who was quite helpful to the
1600 Crew as part of the legal team that challenged the
constitutionality of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

But there is perhaps another reason why Mr. Lenhard is being rewarded
by BushCo. at just this moment. He's the husband of Viveca Novak,
whose testimony now provides the foundation for Karl Rove's defense in
the CIA leak case.

A small but rather key fact that both the Washington Post and the
White House Press Release manages to leave out, wouldn't you say? They
WaPo is having quite a stint in the GOP stenography department this
week, it would seem. "

I read this on KOS. Yeah, but you are being too hard on these guys. After all, you can't expect criminals to act like Saints. Our people stood up and said in 2000 and 2004 that they wanted a coke-head-dry-drunk with a C- average to run the country. So what if he stole both elections, he's in charge now. As Lieberman said, we point out his crimes at the peril of the nation.
