Rove under fire after document dump

Too funny. You've proably heard by now that the House Judiciary Committee released thousands of pages of emails relative to the politicalized DOJ firings under the Bush White House. Karl Rove and Harriet Miers have both testified now. Word on Twitter is that Harriet threw Karl under the bus but that is probably just going to be icing on the schadenfreude cake. TPM has its readers digging into the document dump, or as the cool kids are calling it now, crowdsourcing, and already they came up with this gem.
In a January 2007 email, White House political director Sara Taylor wrote:
Prior is going after Griffin. He's made this his cause.... We need to find some folks to defend Tim and his credentials, not to mention our policy.

Your thoughts? Rich Lowry offered to help Tim
The best part? Taylor went on to ask: "Anyone better?"
That would be Rich Lowry of the National Review. The same guy who saw starbursts when Sarah Palin winked at him on his teevee during the primary debates.

Meanwhile, you almost have to admire Rove's bravado. On the heels of the release of the docs he tweeted, "I welcome release of HJC interviews & docs. Items speak for themselves." As I tweeted to him, "Why yes. Yes they do."

I've always thought of Schadenfreude as more of a strudel.

LOL. Cake is a new adaptation of an old recipe.
