Did Karl Rove dodge the draft?

Did Karl Rove dodge the draft?

Karl Rove escaped the draft for nearly three years at the height of the Vietnam War using student deferments...


Now, I consider Karl Rove a poisonous evil slug but he's at least officially a Behind The Scenes Guy (in this case that means Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain). And are skeletons in the closet of a Behind The Scenes Guy fair game? Hey, that's one of the reasons I am a Behind The Scenes Guy!

I suppose if the behind the scenes guy hogs the limelight, he's fair game, but what's the point of bashing the guy for doing what everyone (except for some bizarre reason John Kerry) did? Wasn't all this settled back when we read Bill Clinton's "I loathe the military" letter (first thing I ever liked about the guy) and after that he WON TWO ELECTIONS? With more votes than the other guy, even?

Maybe we should just file this in the bulging GOP Hypocrisy file...
