On 60 Minutes, Blackouts and Karl's House

Cooking Up More Goodies at 60 Minutes
Those of us who were transfixed by 60 Minutes' story on the Don Siegelman prosecution apparently can look forward to a Part II, perhaps this Sunday.

Scott Horton, of Harper's, reports that 60 Minutes is busily preparing a second installment on the Siegelman case. The timing couldn't be better, given Siegelman's release from federal prison last week.

Horton wonders, only slightly in jest, if Part II will be marred by the kind of "technical difficulties" that occurred during Part I at a Huntsville, Alabama, television station. Horton cites a Washington Independent story that shows how unlikely it was that such a blackout could occur accidentally.

Getting the Scoop on Karl's Digs
Horton provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the Raw Story piece on Karl Rove's fancy digs in Rosemary Beach, Florida.

Horton asked Larisa Alexandrovna how she and colleague Lindsay Beyerstein got the remarkable photographs that accompanied their story. You won't want to miss Alexandrovna's cloak-and-dagger tale.

Particularly interesting are comments from the locals, who are none too thrilled that King Karl is in their presence. It seems Turd Blossom is none too popular with his neighbors.

Now to be fair, I'm not too popular with one of my neighbors, Mike McGarity. But McGarity, the charming fellow who filed a bogus lawsuit against me, has at least eight criminal convictions in his background. He's exactly the kind of fellow that I do not want to be popular with.

Something tells me there are not too many criminal convictions among Rove's well-heeled neighbors. Perhaps there is a criminal conviction in King Karl's future, though.
