Karl Rove and the fall of the Roman republic

I'm following the growing Rove corruption scandal with optimism and some amusement, after seeing Scott McClellan go full metal weasel, best reported at wonkette.

My optimism springs from just finishing Rubicon, a really good book on the fall of the Roman republic… lots of parallels to our times.

The difference is in the journalism we have today, which might just help us get rid of the crooks. That's why we gotta keep the good stuff while encouraging the new citizen journalism.
