For a long while there, we liberals stared in wide-eyed amazement--and horror--at what Karl Rove was able to accomplish. He twisted reality, and created an alternate one.

Nonetheless, Rove is gathering henchmen like Karen Hughes, for one last stab at reality distortion. Let's not let him get away with it.
