Karl Rove's Alabama Connection

Presidential advisor Karl Rove had a few forays into Alabama politics, discussed in this Atlantic Monthly article. A swooning Andrew Sullivan called it "a thorough investigation of Karl Rove's record of smearing, sliming and demagoguing to win elections, as well as a respectful analysis of Rove's indisputable political skills."

Thorough, maybe. But, it is neither fair nor balanced in its portrayal of Mr. Rove. Still, it's an interesting read in that it reveals Rove's involvement in building Republican dominance of the Alabama Supreme Court.
