Just off the House floor today, the Crypt overheard House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers tell two other people: "We're closing in on Rove. Someone's got to kick his ass."
Asked a few minutes later for a more official explanation, Conyers told us that Rove has a week to appear before his committee. If he doesn't, said Conyers, "We'll do what any self-respecting committee would do. We'd hold him in contempt. Either that or go and have him arrested."
Between Conyers here along with Rep. Robert Wexler's stance on Rove, Biden's literally calling BS on Bush, and the House's actually voting to cut off funding for Iraq and setting a plan to pull the troops out, it really has me wondering if there hasn't been some kind of a cosmic shift in the Democratic Party lately. Perhaps the third win over the GOP in red districts has lent them some confidence, but whatever it is, may we have some more of that, please?
