Fall Strategery: Burn the Constitution

Digby scopes out Andrew Sullivan to find the neoliberal is a bit troubled by what his friends are planning- and even his friends are troubled by what their Dear Leader has lined up:

Next week, I'm informed via troubled White House sources, will see the full unveiling of Karl Rove's fall election strategy. He's intending to line up 9/11 families to accuse McCain, Warner and Graham of delaying justice for the perpetrators of that atrocity, because they want to uphold the ancient judicial traditions of the U.S. military and abide by the Constitution. He will use the families as an argument for legalizing torture, setting up kangaroo courts for military prisoners, and giving war crime impunity for his own aides and cronies. This is his "Hail Mary" move for November; it's brutally exploitative of 9/11; it's pure partisanship; and it's designed to enable an untrammeled executive. Decent Republicans, Independents and Democrats must do all they can to expose and resist this latest descent into political thuggery. If you need proof that this administration's first priority is not a humane and effective counter-terror strategy, but a brutal, exploitative path to retaining power at any price, you just got it.

Is this all they've got planned for November?

Or just the strong-arm part to take care of what they can't Diebold?

You can bet it isn't. You can bet it's only part of the game. Karl sez it's only 230-year old paper anyway.
