Outlander of the Day ~ Arkansas USA Tim Griffin

Pictured to the left is Grand Master Rove's protege Tim Griffin. He is the new United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, likely only since the end run provision slipped into the Patriot Act renewal in the dead of night by George Mason Professor and Arlen Specter counsel Michael O'Neill and/or Mormon Mafia Brett Tolman, now USA for Utah, let Abu Gonzales appoint him without the Senate having a role.

Greg Palast has pointed out that the Hon. Tim Griffin has potential criminal issues for his 2004 effort in building "caging lists" of African American and Hispanic voters in Democratic leaning districts. Josh Marshall posted a link to Joshua Green's The Atlantic Monthly work from way back in June of 2004 showing this RNC oppo operative was certainly part of "playing dirty". Reckon where he learned that? Tim Griffin was quoted as saying ""We think of ourselves as the creators of the ammunition in a war," he says. "We make the bullets."

Any doubt why the Rove bunch didn't want hearings on this fella? And reckon why I just saw Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) on CNN defending Abu? A spectacle indeed! Finally, the Green piece referenced above will likely be fodder for future work. Great insight into both Republican and Democratic Party efforts. It appears the one thing the GOP seems to excel in is "playing dirty". That taxpayers are paying Karl Rove's salary is yet another outrage yet considering how poorly Bu$hCo has treated taxpayers, beyond his "have mores" base of course, that should be no surprise. Peace ... or War!
