If Karl Rove Was on Steroids--Could We Jail Him Now?

The other day I had to point out the similarities between Alex Rodriguez and George W. Bush. Today we have to look at the similarities between Greg Anderson and Karl Rove. For those of you trying to avoid the nitty-gritty of the story, Anderson is Barry Bonds' personal trainer, the one who refused to cooperate with prosecutors who consider him, according to ESPN, "a vital witness for the government as it tries to prove Bonds lied to a grand jury investigating steroid use by athletes."

Anderson has already spent a year in prison for refusing to testify. Because, as we all know, if Barry Bonds lied to a grand jury, the very foundations of our society might crumble if he is not brought to justice.

Meanwhile there's Karl Rove, who yesterday was supposed to appear before the House Judiciary committee to testify about the US Attorney firings. He said he wouldn't and didn't. He is not in jail.

It's good to live in a country where the priorities are so clear.

Ah, and you left out the best seedy sports/politics connection yet: A-Rod hired the same crisis mgmt consulting company to work for him that Sarah Palin did when the Levi Johnston story broke!
