Fire Karl Rove

Harry Reid is right. Rove should be fired. Via the Washington Post:
"The president said anyone involved would be gone," Reid said. "And we now know that Official A is Karl Rove. He's still around. He should be let go." Reid added that if Bush "is a man of his word, Rove should be history."
Rove's defense? He forgot that he leaked Valerie Plame's name. As for Libby, another story looks at the question of what got into him:
"I've thought about this all night," said one acquaintance. "One possibility is that Scooter was just pushing back because Wilson was after them -- but it just went too far. And frankly he may have thought the reporters would never testify."
No kidding. Judith Miller went to jail and had to be reminded that Libby had mentioned Plame to her on June 23, 2003 before finding the words "Valerie Flame" in her notebook, which fortunately hadn't been eaten by the dog.
