The Ministry of Truth Reminds You: Karl Rove, American Hero; Joseph Wilson, Anti-American Evil-doer and Kerry Supporter

You will attend the ticker-tape parade to honor Our Brave American Hero upon the conclusion of today's Two Minutes Hate. He always tells the truth. He never tells a lie. We must honor him by allowing him to choose the next justice on the Supreme Court.

Karl Rove, Whistleblower
He told the truth about Joe Wilson.

The opening lines of a Wall Street Journal editorial:

Democrats and most of the Beltway press corps are baying for Karl Rove's head over his role in exposing a case of CIA nepotism involving Joe Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame. On the contrary, we'd say the White House political guru deserves a prize--perhaps the next iteration of the "Truth-Telling" award that The Nation magazine bestowed upon Mr. Wilson before the Senate Intelligence Committee exposed him as a fraud.

For Mr. Rove is turning out to be the real "whistleblower" in this whole sorry pseudo-scandal. He's the one who warned Time's Matthew Cooper and other reporters to be wary of Mr. Wilson's credibility. He's the one who told the press the truth that Mr. Wilson had been recommended for the CIA consulting gig by his wife, not by Vice President Dick Cheney as Mr. Wilson was asserting on the airwaves. In short, Mr. Rove provided important background so Americans could understand that Mr. Wilson wasn't a whistleblower but was a partisan trying to discredit the Iraq War in an election campaign. Thank you, Mr. Rove.

It is the right thing to do to "out" members of the CIA. It has always been the right thing to do. Public Servant Rove, we honor your bravery in the face of the enemies of the state.
