Bye Bye Karl

So Karl Rove is fleeing the sinking ship. The ship that he helped set up to sink. Now he's slinking back to Texas. I don't know what to say. Part of me is glad that piece of &#$% won't be sharing the same air in this city with me anymore. But most of me is pissed off that we didn't get a chance to drag him out of the white house in handcuffs. The idea of him being able to just walk away from the chaos and misery that he engineered just doesn't sit well with me.

So Karl - so glad to get you the hell out of DC, don't slam the door on your way out, and don't bother ever coming back. And Texas, do yourselves and all of us a favor. Toss him out on a deserted offshore oil rig and keep him there for the rest of his life. He doesn't deserve the opportunity to live among the rest of us.

I completely agree, good riddance, but this guy certainly was good at what he did...he managed to get George W. Bush, a candidate clearly inferior to both Al Gore and John Kerry in terms of intellect, experience and other relevant qualifications, elected twice. Well, maybe only once, if you believe the arbiter of 2000 was the Supremes...still, you've got to admit the guy had skills and a finger on the pulse of the body politic. I hope we're smarter as an electorate now than we were--that's the upside of making mistakes in voting or anything else--but time will tell. The modern media environment makes it easy for skilled spinmeisters and dividers like Rove to operate, unfortunately.

He always reminded me of Atwater - another Republican architect who was more concerned with winning an election than winning it without trying to split the nation in half.

yes, right, rove is an atwater clone without the conscience atwater developed right at the end there. newt gingrich is in this category, too, by virtue of his urging candidates not just to disagree with, but actively demonize their oppoents--you know, call them "sick," "twisted," "traitorious," etc. etc. if people wonder where civility went in politics, it started going with the debut of these people.

He will be in a cage soon enough! Mark my words! Conyers is not the only one after him.

In a way, this is better. Were he tried and convicted now, Bush would pardon him. The time to file charges is February, 2009.
