Not All The News Was Good To the Left
It seems Ronnie Earle has lost another round in his fight to convict Tom DeLay, an appeals court rejected his request to reinstate a felony charge of violating campaign finance law. Sorry Ronnie, but that makes two levels of the court that have a hard time justifying charging someone with a crime that wasn't on the books when the action happened.
On the other end of the spectrum, Karl Rove giving up some of his duties is causing me to laugh at a lot of editorialists this morning. These are the folks who've been clamoring for a second term shake up, as most presidents have done. Two months ago they wrote it would be a sign of good faith from the president that he's listening to the masses. Now that some folks have moved on, and some reassigned, or had jobs realigned, the same stooges call it a sign of weakness.
I'm not sorry to see Scott McClellan go as Press Secretary, I've always found him to be annoying, and not very good at the job. And Rove needs less duties, it give him more time to be evil, and plot the theft of the upcoming 2006 Congressional elections. That will be the accusation in November when the Democrats don't win Congress back.
Now, anyone expecting Bush to bring on Nancy Pelosi as his cheif advisor is going to be disappointed, even in the mini shake up he's not going to go out and hire anyone that the left will find appealing. Instead he'll do like he always does, (and as every other president has), he'll find someone of a like mind, who he trusts to give decent advice.
As for the White House spokesman, Jay at Stop the ACLU has a great idea to fill that job. I'm not a big fan of the guy he's suggesting, but can see the appeal.
