1. The Return of Rove
by Matt Taibbi for Rolling Stone

....
Time celebrated Rove's return to the big stage in August by calling
him "Bush's resident campaign genius." He is "regarded by many as a
campaign genius," added The Hill, while the Sacramento News and
Review distilled "Rove's genius" as his "willingness to push legal and
ethical boundaries where no man has gone before."

Nobody appreciates just how far Rove has pushed those boundaries
more than Don Siegelman, the former Democratic governor of
Alabama. While the rest of us spent the last year forgetting just what
an evil, conniving bastard Rove is, Siegelman was taking the
scandal-plagued last gasp of the George W. Bush era right on the
chin. Successfully prosecuted by the Bush Justice Department on
seven counts of corruption, Siegelman was chased from office and
spent nine months in prison before a judge released him on bond.
When he got out, almost the first words out of his mouth were about
Rove. "His fingerprints," Siegelman said, "are smeared all over this
case."
