Subject: Truthout's claim of Rove's indictment
How come you didn't jump on the bandwagon of linking to Truthout's claim that Karl Rove was indicted? Bartcop claimed Rove was indicted, so did Democraticunderground.com.
I received many emails wanting me to post Truthout's claim. As much as I would like to see Rove indicted, I couldn't find any other verification. Even though this is a political humor site, I do try to be somewhat accurate on such a huge story before proclaiming it as fact.

I'm Numero Uno
Yep, I am the only U.S. president to raid the office of a U.S. Congressman, a Democrat, of course. And it's about time the president took control of that legislative body -- it makes it so much easier to get my agenda shoved through. Plus, I need to get my scandals out of the headlines.
Yeah, this Congressman, William Jefferson from
Louisiana, accepted $100,000 bribe from an undercover FBI dude -- we have it on
videotape. But what really burned my fern was that this dude hid $90,000 in his
freezer wrapped in various food containers. How disrespectful. Any millionaire
worth his salt, would make sure that cold hard cash is kept in a humidity
controlled environment. Or better yet in a Swiss bank, Cayman Islands, etc...
See, that's why I'm president, I know how to take care of other people's money.
