"Someone's got to kick his ass"

Rep. Conyers and Wexler stand for the people.  Good for them, they deserve all the credit in the world.  They are taking Karl Rove to task for his refusal to testify before congress.  From :

"We&;re closing in on Rove," Conyers was heard saying today on the House floor, according to a source for "Someone&;s got to kick his ass....."

"If he doesn&;t show, Conyers said: "We&;ll do what any self-respecting committee would do. We&;d hold him in contempt. Either that or go and have him arrested."

"We want him for so many things, it&;s hard to keep track," he added."  (following video 8min)

If you happen to be unfamiliar with the Siegelman case, Daily Kos explains:

An excerpt:  "Don Siegelman is the only person in the history of Alabama to be elected to serve in all four of the top statewide offices: Secretary of State, Attorney General, Lieutenant Governor and Governor. He served in Alabama politics for 26 years. Until he won his last election, sweeping into the governorship with 57% of the vote, including over 90% of the African-American electorate, Don had never been accused of corrupt or criminal acts."

It continues:  "Something that has not been reported is that they have been physically beating Don.  I don’t know the extent of his injuries or exactly how many times it has happened – but it has been multiple times.  

There are no words for the fury I feel.  This is an outrage.  And it is the most un-American thing I have ever heard.  I cry bitter tears of frustration and rage.

Please everyone.  We have to help Don, and we have to crush these thugs and put them out of the business of perverting our democracy."

This is the story that was blacked out to Alabama citizens when 60 minutes aired the story, "supposedly" because of technical failure.  (If you believe that... I have a bridge to sell ya&;, "trust me".... it&;s a beautiful bridge..)   Check out the  regarding the black out via youtube. (6 min)
