After the White House has brazenly broken laws, the Democrats suddenly grow a spine and authorized subpoenas for Karl Rove and others over with the recent firings of attorneys, where no laws were broken.
Granted, I wasn’t wild about the firings, but why were there no subpoenas for Rove with the Plame scandal? The Spying scandal? The torture scandal? The WMD / Al Qaeda scandal? The drunken face-shooting scandal?
So it’s okay to break the law, as long as lawyers don’t get pissed off.
