Closing in on Rove

From CBS News The Politico:
(The Politico) Just off the House floor today, the Crypt overheard House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers tell two other people: "We're closing in on Rove. Someone's got to kick his ass."

Asked a few minutes later for a more official explanation, Conyers told us that Rove has a week to appear before his committee. If he doesn't, said Conyers, "We'll do what any self-respecting committee would do. We'd hold him in contempt. Either that or go and have him arrested."

Conyers said the committee wants Rove to testify about his role in the imprisonment of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, among other things.

"We want him for so many things, it's hard to keep track," Conyers said.

John K. says: A year ago I said this, The Democrats will hunt Karl Rove down to the ends of the Earth for the most grevious of sins, he defeated Democrats in elections. Try again, Rove ain't going anywhere.

If I may suggest a caption for the photo:

Yeah it's not like he got a blowjob or anything like that (Rove is about as likely to receive sexual favors--other than the Eliot Spitzer kind, of course--as John K is to win a Rhodes Scholarship).

John K. says: Yep, Karl Rove had the temerity to participate in the democratic process and beat the liberals at their own game. This will not be tolerated and he will be hunted down to the ends of the Earth and made an example of. Do I sound like you liberals or what?

Rove claims he never meet or spoke to Dana Jill Simpson.
Will Dana Jill Simpson be put under oath too?
If her story turns out to be BS, will she charged with perjury?

Or will it be like when Valerie Plame testified "under oath" about why Joe Wilson got sent to Niger and gave different answers at three different hearings.

•She told the CIA's inspector general in 2003 or 2004 that she had suggested Wilson.

•Plame told Senate Intelligence Committee staffers in 2004 that she couldn't remember whether she had suggested Wilson.

•She told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March that an unidentified person in Vice President Cheney's office asked a CIA colleague about the African uranium report in February 2002. A third officer, overhearing Plame and the colleague discussing this, suggested, "Well, why don't we send Joe?" Plame told the committee.

So, if Plame lied then Rove must be totally innocent. Thanks for clearing that up.

I'll keep them warm, Karl!
