Theocracy anyone?

From the Denver Post:
Senators from both major political parties have indicated they will call Dobson before the Senate Judiciary Committee to find out what White House political adviser Karl Rove shared about Miers that helped nudge Dobson toward endorsing the White House counsel for the nation's highest court.

Dobson said last week that he based his decision in part on information he could not divulge, though he has not identified Rove as the source.

The evangelical Christian ministry's daily CitizenLink update declared Monday that Dobson will clear up the controversy on Wednesday and Thursday on his daily broadcast, which reaches millions of listeners nationwide.

"Dr. Dobson is being deluged by requests from national media to talk about Harriet Miers and talk about what Karl Rove told him," said Tom Minnery, a senior vice president with Focus on the Family Action, the ministry's political arm. "He'll be explaining that to everybody."

Judiciary Committee members Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Arlen Specter, R-Pa., have said they may call Dobson to testify.

Allen Abney, a White House spokesman, said Monday that Rove discussed his experience working with Miers, her qualifications and judicial philosophy.

So a wacko, religious nut knows more about the new Supreme Court nominee than our Senators ..... the founding fathers must be rolling in their graves.
