Office of Sternberg Coddling to investigate Karl Rove.

Remember Scott Bloch, head of the OSC? Remember how his office produced a report on L'Affaire Sternberg that was an obvious political hatchet job, filled with inaccuracies, exaggerations, and outright lies?

Good news: He's about to launch an investigation of Karl Rove's political interference with the executive branch. Yes, the only guy who might possibly contend with Rove for the title of worst political hack ever is going to investigate charges of political hackery. Not to worry though, Bloch says he'll be objective:

"We will take the evidence where it leads us," Scott J. Bloch, head of the Office of Special Counsel and a presidential appointee, said in an interview Monday.

Hm, where have I head that aphorism before? If past behavior is any guide, the purpose of this investigation is to whitewash Rove's unsavory deeds. But maybe Bloch will prove me wrong.
