GOP says little on Siegelman
Editorial in the Montgomery Advertiser

....Of course not all were happy with his release. The Alabama
Republican Party chairman said it was "just a formality."

Have you noticed the deafening silence from Montgomery? That is the
sound of concern from our "Christian" governor. Has he said anything
about the treatment of Siegelman?

Karl Rove Likes What He Sees
by Lisa Depaulo for GQ Blog

...G.Q:Then how did this happen?

K.R: Because CBS is a shoddy operation. They said, "Hey, if we can
say 'Karl Rove,' 'Siegelman,' that'll be good for ratings. Let's hype it.
We'll put out a news release on Thursday and then promo the hell out
of it on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday." And Scott Pelley—the
question is, Did [60 Minutes correspondent] Scott Pelley say to this
woman, "You say you met with him. Where? And you say that he gave
you other assignments earlier. When did he begin giving you
assignments, and what campaigns did you work with him in? What
evidence? I mean, this woman, she said she met with him: Okay, you
met with him—where? Did you fly to Washington?" Now she says that
she talked to me on the phone and she's got phone records. Of calls
to Washington and Virginia. But what's Virginia? I don't live in Virginia.
And it's 2001. What is in Virginia? It's not the Bush headquarters; that
was in Austin, Texas. What is in Virginia? So—but look, she's a loon.

Karl Rove Likes What He Sees

Including what he sees on Power Line (scroll to almost the end of the interview
where Rove mentions Dana Jill Simpson).

JOHN adds: This is the exchange from the Rove interview:

Let's talk about the last couple of scandals you've been involved in. Don
Siegelman in Alabama [the Democratic governor whom Rove was recently
accused of trying to sabotage by forcing U.S. attorneys to bring corruption
charges against him prior to an election]. What happened?
