Karl Rove was a victim of criminalized politics
Many of Rove's opponents preferred to criminalize him rather than beat him at politics.
As hard as it is for some of you lefties to accept this, Karl Rove has been the victim of a campaign to do through the criminal system what his opponents haven't been able to do through the political system. That he's owed an apology from the media and his political enemies is an understatement. Love him or hate him, Karl Rove deserves to be attacked politically, not criminally. Yet it's the latter that has been the weapon of choice for those who simply couldn't beat him in the battle of political ideas and tactics. That says so much more about his opponents than it does about him.
