If Treason isn't enough, then perhaps maybe nookie? This seems to be the new tack that Kos is taking with regard to Karl Rove. And frankly that makes me very, very disappointed.

Why is it that things like lying about the casus belli for the Iraq War and outing a CIA agent for cold-blooded revenge are not enough to get people outraged? Why is it we have to bring S-E-X into the picture? I suppose it's because of the very fact that Dubya is getting away with far worse things than an Oval Office Blow Job, and that the outrage level is still so low. So we go the predictable route. Karl Rove has a girlfriend! Nyah nyah nyah nyah NYAH nyah!

Yeah, I know this is war. Yeah, I know that Rove's played the nookie card in the past, and in a certain way turnabout is fair play. Yeah, I know that there's been a fair amount of schadenfreude about Gannon/Guckert and his vocation as a gay escort. But still, this is beneath us. It's all about the TREASON. It ain't about the sex. Whether Karl Rove has one mistress or many mistresses or is getting plooked up the butt by Gannon/Guckert is immaterial to the issues at hand with regard to Mr. Rove. His sexual behavior neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. His behavior in leaking Valerie Plame's identity is the issue at hand. Let's keep our eyes on the ball, shall we?
