Jill Simpson Is Our Republican of the Week.

Here is another of our weekly efforts to prove our bi-partisan bono fides by featuring a praiseworthy Republican.

Jill Simpson is a Republican operative in Alabama who has come forward to say Karl Rove asked her to try to prove the state’s Democratic governor was unfaithful to his wife in an effort to thwart the highly successful politician’s re-election.

Rove’s attempt to smear Don Siegelman was part of a Republican campaign to ruin him that finally succeeded in imprisoning him, according to operative , according to the official press release.

Simpson will be speaking to Scott Pelley in her first television interview, to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday, Feb. 24 (7-8 p.m., ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Freshman U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn let it slip at the beginning of remarks at a weekend town hall meeting in Muskogee:

I will tell you personally that I think it was probably a mistake going to Iraq. But it doesn't do any good to dwell on it because we're there. How we got there is (the) past.

Coburn's comment came less than a week after he returned from his second trip to Iraq since entering the Senate.

Let's see..... Karl Rove asked an operative to find real and solidly documented proof of an affair on a political opponent.

Rove wanted proof. Photographs even. How quaint. How old school.

Today all you need is The New York Times to simply suggest a rumor of an affair on the front page, above the fold, without any proof what-so-ever.

I long for the good old days.

By the way, I lived in Alabama when Seigelman was governor and I voted for him twice. He did an excellent job.

But he did make on hell of a mistake when he climbed into bed with Richard Scrushy of HealthSouth fame. Seigelman's lucky he only got 7 years.

Me too Wiz. That 60 Minute piece sure made him look like a victim.
