Even Karl Rove Has Given Up On Saving Bush’s Legacy

I heard the news late last night that Karl Rove will be resigning at the end of this month, but rather than being happy about the Roving Pig’s departure, all I could think was, “how is it possible that this slimeball will walk out of the White House on his own terms rather than being led out in handcuffs?” The scum really does rise to the top.

For all of the damage that Rove has wrought on the political process, the good news is that his dirty style of politics has, in the end, hurt his team more than the others. The Republicans are left with a bad brand that no one wants to touch, they’re like Depends Undergarments, they may be useful, but you sure as hell don’t want anyone to see you with them and it’s a last resort after everything else has failed.

Although there is lingering resentment for the way this White House has corrupted Washington, our government and the political process, Rove’s departure is a reminder that the end is near. If there was anything possible left to accomplish, Rove would surely stay, but this lame duck president is bankrupt of political capital, his own Party despises him for what he’s done to their future prospects and his time left in office is dwindling. I’ve given up on the hope that he will be impeached (although not impeaching him is a huge mistake for the long term stability of our current form of government), but I’m finally able to imagine a time beyond Bush.

I’m comfortable with the legacy that will plague the Bush name in the history books and even though Karl Rove will get away with the crimes he’s perpetrated on this country, it’s comforting to know that even he has given up trying to polish the turd he once thought was his golden boy. At least there’s some political justice.

The Chinese CEO who accidentally allowed too much lead in the paint for millions of children's toys, just killed himself in shame.

If only American leaders were held to the same standard... :)

We haven't seen the last of Karl Rove. I'm predicting that he'll show up on Fred Thompson's campaign very soon. The timing is just too damn suspicious.

kvatch: Nope, not Fred Thompson. It is rumored that turd blossum is consulting for Rudely Ghouliani.

THE GROWTH OF "NEOCONSERVATISM"

The tumor grows so large, I fear,
It cannot be cut out
Except with loss of life--"O dear,"
I hear the numbskulls shout.

It should have been nipped in the bud,
Ripped forth as even Caesar,
But men too busy reaping good
Reward like Ebenezer,

Gave more mind to their pocketbook
Than to affairs of state:
Now they decide to have a look
But time has gotten late.
