Republican Strategist Karl Rove is a man known for creating aggressively partisan, anti-Democrat ads. He did it recently with an anti-Hillary Clinton bit and was scolded for it by The Weekly Standard‘s Bill Kristol.

In the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan says Rove shouldn’t take his Rovian approach to the IRS scandal, either.

From Noonan’s Friday column:

[I]t would be shameful and shallow for any Republican operative or operator to make this scandal into a commercial and turn it into a mere partisan arguing point and part of the game. It’s not part of the game. This is not about the usual partisan slugfest. This is about the integrity of our system of government and our ability to trust, which is to say our ability to function.
