"Fred Dwyer at HuffPo (link) fired out the question of why we should be surprised that Rove skated in an investigation run by a Republican-appointed special prosecutor? Why did we pin our hopes on a man whose 'maverick' crededtials had been built up by a media that we have no reason to trust?depressing.
These days all the noise in high profile Leftblogistan is made over working within the system to make changes. "Gotta get our Dem candidates in, the DLC is useless and they're gonna support Lieberman as an independent against Lamont, the fuckers."
Others are 'busy' analyzing Busby's loss to see what tactics they have to change, while Brad Friedman is screaming into the silence that the damn thing was probably as fixed as every other Republican win in the last 7 years!
I think the answer goes back to the reason put forth by Mark Crispin Miller , also posted at HuffPo, in an Open Letter to Salon.
Denial and fear.
We pinned so many of our hopes on Fitz that we can't accept the possibility that he was compromised from the start.
We continually bitch over this and that Dem's vote because can't accept that so many Democratic "leaders" are as bought and paid for as their Repug counterparts.
We can't admit that the elections were fixed because that means the cancer has reached the heart of the American democratic system and metastasized.
Rove skated because that's what was in his script for this portion of the show. Busby/Bilbray was the intro act for the 'Elections '06' production. Rove's non-indictment 'exoneration' is just another pro-Republican piece of his great, grand (old party) narrative.
We're all focusing on small pieces of the puzzle. This bastard's still looking at the big picture."
