Okay, its an obvious no-brainer.

Karl Rove is the most deceitful man in politics since Lee Atwater. And frankly, he might give Atwater a run for his money. Scott McClellan is obviously trying to save face, to a certain extent. He painfully shifted and shuddered in front of the WH Press Corp during his time as WH Press Secretary, and with good reason. What little he did, or did now know, he was simply thrown to the wolves to dance like a bird on a wire for the national press.

I felt bad for him when I watched him on C-SPAN during his tenure. He was clearly uncomfortable, but still trying to go to bat for a president who values loyalty more than truth, apparently.

Karl Rove has plenty of seedy ties when it comes to the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, who’s been released from prison, and likely is not going to go back since that case is so ridiculously absurd.

CNN: Vice President Dick Cheney should testify before Congress about his role in the leaking of a CIA agent’s identity, former White House spokesman Scott McClellan told members of the House Judiciary Committee on Friday.

“The vice president has information that has not been shared publicly,” McClellan said in response to a question from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, about whom Congress should question in connection with the leaking of Valerie Plame Wilson’s name to the media.

“You could go down the list: Karl Rove, Ari Fleischer …” McClellan added, referring to President Bush’s former political adviser and first White House spokesman.

McClellan said he does not think the president knew in advance about the Plame Wilson leak.
