Dangers of Defaming a War Hero

In response to David Ignatius' OpEd piece in the Washington Post of 8/24/2004.

David Ignatius in his Op-Ed piece says that, at some point, the public may ask Karl Rove: "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"
Karl Rove answered that one a long time ago, when he unleashed his flying monkey brigades after John McCain and Max Cleland. The conduct of this White House in the outing of Valerie Plame and reportedly exposing the only double agent in Al Qaeda, has amply demonstrated that there is nothing they will stop at to hold onto political power. Their failure to condemn the lies coming out of the SBVT campaign is only the latest piece of evidence of an administration nearly devoid of decency, integrity, or respect for those who have amply demonstrated those qualities. I can only hope that the American public can take their eyes off "reality TV" long enough to realize that this gang has gone back to the same well too often and reject this despicable tactic at the ballot box.
