The New Rove Spin

by Philip Baruth

The Times reports on the new Rove spin, designed to soften his image in advance of indictment:

“But even as White House officials and Republicans say that Mr. Rove is human and that the leak investigation has taken an enormous toll on his family, they also insist that everyone is focused on the work at hand, and that Mr. Rove is good at compartmentalizing his life.”

I love the fact that the very first thing they need to sell the world on is that the guy is, in fact, human.
