    But the fact that Bush gave us such a small target gives us a big opening to define the terms of the debate -- if Senate Democrats are smart enough to use this as an educational opportunity.

    •  What frustrates me (none)
      is that I believe that if this nominee had been announced before Rove was fingered as Cooper's source, the reaction at dKos would have been Rove is trying to screw us with this stealth candidate, so let's fight back.

      Instead, everyone is framing this choice as a sign of Karl Rove's weakness and need for diversion.

      Excuse me?

      If this is a sign of weakness, then why is the talk around here all about how we just have to suck it up because there's no way to fight Roberts unless we maybe think up some magic question that we'll shoot at him come September?

      Rove is using his troubles to give Roberts cover, not vice versa.  What does that tell us about what we should be doing in response?
