I think Rove and Cheney purposely pick wedge issues like Bolton, or John Roberts, to distract their base from critical thinking. I mean, make an 'us
or them ' issue, create a situation that forces conformation with everyone else (aka 'liberals'). So instead of a deep reflection upon Rove and
Cheney failed policies, and crooked administration, people fall into the trap of: "Liberals wont' let so and so get nominated!" They picked
impossible nominees, to give their base something to rally behind, and enemy to hate. They create conformation, to lead their base into a position
where they must fight, out of principle, and be angry out of spite.
