  •  I respectfully disagree. (none)
    Republican hypocrisy is another issue.  This is about integrity, and whether or not Bush believes his agenda can "stand on its own two feet."  

    It can't, and that should be the focus.

    •  I think in a convoluted way... (none)
      that your point is what I (clumsily) was trying to make.  The integrity/agenda issue are and should be the primary focus.  But I believe that all other issues are relevant in the framing of that focus.

      In other words, I respectfully agree with you.

      •  Relevant but not as important (none)
        Given that Rove's "winning" 2004 election strategy was to put gay marriage referenda on ballots across the country, the hypocrisy of Gannon's sexual orientation is quite relevant. But the far more important point is his role as a plant and possibly  a treasonous media plant at that.

          for making my point exactly!

        •  The gay well runs dry (none)
          Gannon being gay and/or a prostitute is only hypocritical if you can prove GOPUSA or Rove knew about it.  What are the chances of that?  Zero.  All they have to do is deny knowing anything about Gannon's personal life (and they probably don't) and the story goes dead cold.

          The real issue is the Bush Administration placing a shill in the White House press corps--A "reporter" with no journalism background and his fingerprints all over a secret CIA memo.  Now that dog can hunt.
