We hear that President Bush's buddy Karl Rove could be held "in contempt" by Congress. Join the crowd, Congress. The nation as a whole should hold Rove in contempt. He is a perfect reflection of the Bush administration — arrogant, power mad and completely uncaring about the burdens of the American people. I ask myself, how many average Americans asked to testify before Congress could tell them to take a hike and get away with it?

The inability of our system to bring people like Rove in to clarify their actions while serving in high positions (elected or not) is a tragedy. Americans could hardly be blamed for holding Congress and the presidential administration in contempt.
