Everyone knows that Karl Rove is one of the sketchiest figures in U.S. politics (ever?). His 'arguments' during the 'debate' are a farce that aren't even worth addressing. That protesters showed up is no surprise... but this particular attempt was pathetically weak. If they really wanted to put on a show, the protesters should have at the very least gone up as a pair, been a bit more forceful, and put up some resistance. Had they actually managed to at least get one of the cuffs on him it would have been humiliating enough for Rove to carry on with the debate with a cuff on his hand... (of course, the protestors wouldn't have brought the key with them to take it off on the spot).
I want to see Rove held accountable, but how and by whom... What do you think? What should happen to Rove? Is a theatrical citizen's arrest enough? A tarring and feathering in front of the Washington Monument? Full fledged trial in front of Supreme Court judges? Will Bush pardon and immunize himself, Rove, and others in his administration? Will Obama launch investigations into what has gone down in the last 8 years?
