irony, as a building material

Okay, look, I know that not everyone, not even everyone I happen to like and respect, shares, or even appreciates, my political junkie-ness (stop groaning, you know what it means even if you don't think it's a "real" word) - where was I?, oh yes - even if "everyone" is not on board this boat (and its floating, not sinking....); however, if you've been paying attention at all, this bit of inspired editing is as funny as, oh, I don't know, say Jon Stewart (my first choice is actually Richard Pryor but some in my small circle of acquaintances pretend not to remember any of his bits - or worse, omigawd, don't really know if he was at all), or whoever you may think is politically acute and witty (witty in the Shakespearean sense as well as the "funny" sense). This is from today's Abbreviated Pundit Round-Up by Barbara Morrill aka BarbinMD from Daily Kos wherein she redacts, with wit, a quote from today's Karl Rove column in the journal (you are on your own to look for the link to the column) - I don't don't link to Karl Rove columns (at least not in this post).

Anyway, the witty bit:

Team Obama Bush -- aided by Clintonistas Bushites Paul Begala, James Carville and Stanley Greenberg Dick Cheney and Bob Novak -- decided to attack Rush Limbaugh Joe Wilson after poring over opinion research Wilson's report on Niger. White House senior adviser David Axelrod Karl Rove explicitly authorized the assault. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel Scooter Libby assigned a White House official to coordinate the push. And Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Ari Fleischer gleefully punched the launch button at his podium, suckering the White House press corps into dropping what they were doing to get Mr. Limbaugh Joe Wilson.
