Karl Rove is a "Senior Administration Official"

As 'Explainer' at Slate, the online magazine, reminds us you can call Rove a 'senior administration official' without getting your face slapped.

And he hasn't come out saying he wasn't Woodward's source.

Hadley's playing a game--'maybe I am, maybe I'm not'--possibly to distract the news media.

It's amazing the amount of effort the Bush people will go to in hiding something that will come out anyway --Unless conditions become such as we get another warning to "Watch what we say--watch what we do". Then maybe SP Fitzgerald can be declared to be aiding terrorists and this could all go away.

Since there are no hard and fast rules on attribution, reporters can punch up their stories by ascribing "senior" status to just about anyone. The only people who can't be senior administration officials, the Washington Post's Dana Milbank told the Explainer, are the interns.
