Spins Of Omission

July 14th, 2005at 05:49pm Posted by Eli

In contemplating the ongoing Rove/Plamegate shitstorm, I found myself wondering why the Republicans haven’t resorted to spin along the lines of, “Hey, Rove just passed that as background information to a trusted reporter to warn him not to get too gung-ho about the yellowcake story, but he certainly had no intention for Cooper to publish her identity, and indeed he didn’t. No harm, no foul. Now, the person who leaked to Novak, they wanted her name to get out there – that’s the real bad guy, that’s the one who really needs to be fired and imprisoned.”

Of course, the best reason for not using this spin is that Rove is also the one who leaked to Novak (and others, who chose not to use it) with clear malicious intent.
