The Preemptive Martyrdom of Karl Rove

The Preemptive Martyrdom of Karl Rove

The Nation‘s DC editor Christopher Hayes on Karl Rove’s impending Congressional hearing.


In an interview with Fox News, Karl Rove suggested he was being set up
for a “show trial.” Keith Olbermann and Christopher Hayes, Washington
DC editor for The Nation, discuss the ludicrousness of him describing
the closed-door proceedings before the House Judiciary Committee in such
a shrill and dramatic manner.
