With so much written about Democrats being caught in GOP frames, it sure is nice for a change to see a Republican thrashing around inside a Democratic frame.

Hats off to Talking Points Memo for catching Kenny Mehlman--GOP Chairman extrordinaire--try to punch his way out of the "leak" frame (the piece is posted here):

RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman, "visiting Iowa Wednesday, said senior Bush adviser Karl Rove rightly tried to steer a reporter away from a story about Iraq's nuclear intentions, but didn't illegally expose an undercover agent in doing so. ‘A leak is when you ask a reporter to write a story. He was discouraging a reporter from writing a false story,’ Mehlman…told The Des Moines Register during a trip to Iowa." Mehlman "said that Rove was complying with investigators and that Democrats who have called for the influential Bush administration adviser to resign are trying to tar Rove and the White House. ‘He has also fully cooperated with the special prosecutor,’ Mehlman added. ‘For Democrats to smear him by alleging that telling the truth about a false story -- not anyone has said he told her name or what she did -- in my judgment is inappropriate.’"

Everyone in the Democratic message network can stand up and take a bow:   The Chairman of the GOP is officially trapped in the "leak" frame.
