"If It’s Sunday, It’s Karl Rove"

roveKarl Rove will be a guest this Sunday on Face the Nation, Meet the Press, and Fox News Sunday (ABC’s This Week is hosting a Democratic presidential debate).

Thus far, Rove’s farewell media blitz has simply provided him a platform to offer partisan attacks.

The media will be tempted to pick “Bush’s brain” for his views on the political horserace, on everything from the Democratic presidential candidates to Iraq to Bush’s veto threats. But they shouldn’t forget that Rove has yet to personally account for much of his sordid record in the White House. Here are a few of the issues that Rove needs to be asked about:

– Promoting the war as a member of the White House Iraq Group
— Leaking Valerie Plame’s identity
— Compiling the list of fired U.S. attorneys
— Politicizing government agencies
— Dealing with Jack Abramoff
— Violating White House email record-keeping rules

And there are a variety of other misdeeds. Let us know in the comments section what you’d like to see Rove get grilled on. We’ll be watching this Sunday to see if Rove is tossed some softballs or zinged with hardballs.
