Feeding Frenzy

Now that the shock has worn off, it is crystal clear that today's arrest of a Democratic Illinois governor is, to borrow a phrase from President Bush, so much "political theatre."

The feeding frenzy this has touched off among Republicans is enough to make even the most jaded Rovians drool.
