Democrats vs Republicans: Law and Rove

The important vote to hold Karl Rove in contempt for skipping his hearing was an essential step towards confirming that we are still a nation of laws (emphasis mine):

Voting 20-14 along party lines, the House Judiciary Committee said that Rove had broken the law by failing to appear at a July 10 hearing on allegations of White House influence over the Justice Department, including whether Rove encouraged prosecutions against Democrats such as former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.

This vote is an honorable and appropriate move by the Democrats, and a disagrace to the Republicans.

  1. Didn’t expect any less.

  2. Actually I was pleasantly surprised by the Democrats. I almost want to say reassuringly: “see? Having a backbone isn’t so hard, is it? Good job!”.
