to Chris Wallace's question about the media coverage of Rove vs. Durbin:

"No more needs to be said about the motives of the media."


I haven't said much about this, because others have already done so brilliantly. Of course the comparisons between Rove and Durbin's comments are extraordinarly disingenuous. Rove's comments have the demonstrable advantage of being true (the Rove/Dean comparisons are a little better, but Rove's weren't done out of hatred (and lest anyone object, hate is of course the exact word Dean himself has used to describe his feelings for Republicans), and again have the advantage of being true). But even the comparison is an example of the Left's new speak, their redefinition of words and attempts to shift the center of the political spectrum by declaring the ends equal, despite their embracing much more extreme ends as part of the "mainstream" than the right does, or could ever get away with. Loud rap music = torture (which in a totally non-partisan, tounge-in-cheek fashion I would wholeheartedly agree with, but that is neither here nor there), and Karl Rove = Dick Durbin. These are unserious and irrelevant people, but still dangerous.
