It can't come as any surprise to pajama word warriors, liberal slayers and other astute conservatives that the liberals are going berserk following the Durbin Debacle.

The outrage over Karl Rove's comments and demands for his ousting was only to be expected. I have found a number of highly entertaining commentary by some of my favorite bloggers. Following, is a list of a few of my favorites:

Good point by Erik at REDSTATE.ORG: "Rove did not say Democrat. Rove said "liberal." Rove did not say progressive. Rove said liberal. Yet, all the folks who call themselves progressive and Democrat have jumped out to attack him. John Kerry even said Rove challenged the patriotism of "every American" and "For Karl Rove to equate Democratic policy on terror to indictments or therapy or to suggest that the Democratic response to 9/11 was weak is disgraceful." Hmmmm . . . considering Rove never mentioned Democrats, it is quite funny how the Dems are beating the hell out of him for saying what he said. I guess they just might be admitting they are the liberal party."

Good piece of advice for Democrats from JAY REDING.COM: "...if the democrats don't want to be accused of being weak on defense, perhaps they should stop being weak on defense for a change."

As usual, CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS spells it out in no uncertain terms with examples of why Karl Rove only told the truth: "What we have here, in this demand for a retraction after a season of personal attacks from Howard Dean, Harry Reid, and the entire leadership of the Democratic Party is pusillanimity at its most hypocritical. Talk about dishing it out and not being able to take it! That the party of Harry Truman has descended to this jaw-dropping level of political cowardice and sheer crybaby status boggles the mind."

BLOGS FOR BUSH details WHY ROVE WAS RIGHT. They also have a good post on WHITE HOUSE DEFENDS ROVE: "it takes a great deal of guts to be a member of a Party which has chipped away at post-9/11 national unity and then complain that someone calling you on it is eroding national unity...national unity, Senator, would be Democrats not lying about why we went in to liberate Iraq; national unity would be Democrats not giving honored place to a fascist-apologist like Michael Moore; national unity would be Democrats condemning in no uncertain terms the likes of George Soros and MoveOn."

HUGH HEWITT refers to RNCs Ken Mehlman's comment, followed by a long list of how liberals truly did respond to 9/11 and the War on Terrorism: "It's outrageous that the same Democrats who stood by Dick Durbins libeling of our military are now expressing faux outrage over Karl Roves statement of historical fact. George Soros, Michael Moore, MoveOn and the hard left were wrong after 9/11, just as it was wrong for Democrat leaders to stand by and remain silent after Dick Durbin made his deplorable comments. - RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman

ANKLE-BITING PUNDITS gives 6 reasons why the Democrats have made a huge strategic blunder in attacking Karl Rove.
OH MY!! So much to read so little time!

UPDATE: Add to your list of how Liberals responded to 9/11 and the War on Terror one John Kerry: "I believe I can fight a more effective, more thoughtful, more strategic, more proactive, more sensitive war on terror"
