Is the Well Finally Dry?

IS THE WELL FINALLY DRY?….So how is Karl Rove’s “Democrats are appeasers” campaign offensive going? Not so well: JAG lawyers don’t like George Bush’s new rules for military tribunals, Democrats are insisting that his wiretapping plans actually be fully debated, and Republicans aren’t too happy about his endorsement of torture as long as only the CIA does it. Steve Benen has the roundup.

And while you’re over there, Steve also rounds up the commentary on Osama bin Laden’s peculiar preference for helping out Bush and Rove by releasing scary videotapes right around election time. You’d almost think he likes having these guys in power, wouldn’t you?
