The White House has been twisting arms to ensure that no Republican member votes against President Bush in the Senate Judiciary CommitteeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s investigation of the administration’s unauthorized wiretapping.
Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for re-election in November.
Gee, do ya think so? Normally presidents vigorously support members of Congress who are engaged in things, honestly or not, designed to bring them down, don’t they?
Just ask Bill Clinton, political deity and zipper oracle worshipped by all in the liberal congregation. I’m sure Bill campaigned and helped raise money like crazy for these Democrats who voted for the impeachment inquiry. Didn’t he? Anyone? … Anyone?
Also, get ready to hear the term “blacklist” an awful lot in the coming days, until some enterprising young liberal remembers that they’re dealing with Republican Senators and decides to change the term to “whitelist”.
