Rove's Resigning... And You Believe That?

Rove won't stop being Rove just because he's no longer haunting the West Wing on a daily basis.

Remember this?

When it looked like Rove wouldn't be able to cheat another election and Senator Kerry would be rightfully elected president, Karl Rove took symbolism to a new level and threw himself under the bus (actually, the nose of Bush's plane).

Thanks to Diebold and corrupt Ohio Republicans, Rove's job was saved!

And remember this?

And we all now how her return to BushCo turned out...

The Second Coming of Karen Hughes

Posted August 9, 2007 | 05:45 PM (EST)

Bush's propaganda czarina Karen Hughes -- her official jawbreaking title is Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs -- has had her ups and downs since being sworn in her State Department position in September 2005. When the long-time Bush confidante rejoined the "mission-accomplished" team in her new international-image-polishing job (she had been, among her previous capacities, a member of the secretive White House Iraq Group that led our country into war), some public-diplomacy veterans hoped that her close relationship with the President would make "engaging, informing, and influencing key international audiences" (the State Department's definition of public diplomacy) more successful than it had been during our Commander in Chief's first term.

But Bush Kampaigner Karen's first public foray into world affairs -- her infamous "listening tour" to the Middle East in the fall of 2005 -- was ridiculed by both the US and international media as an illustration of her ignorance (she disclosed, to an Egyptian opposition leader, that our Constitution cites "one nation under God") and lack of cultural sensitivity (she offended some Saudi women by reproaching them for not having the right to drive). After that disastrous overseas venture, she seemed to keep a lower profile, and by 2006 was practically off the media radar screen, especially during the Second Lebanese War. When she did engage in rare (for her official position) public events (many directed to American audiences to show them how good we US citizens were because of our compassionate-conservative aid to less fortunate foreigners) she was not infrequently criticized, including by the right-wing media, which accused her of being too accommodating to Muslim organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Trust me, Karl Rove will not ride off into the sunset, never to be heard from again.

This guy's a cockroach.

And there's always this...

He'd like to teach eventually, but he has no specific job plans, save to write a book on the Bush years, which "the boss," as in Mr. Bush, "has encouraged me to do." As for what his own White House mistakes have been, Mr. Rove winces and says, "I'll put my feet up in September and think about that."

And what about Jeb Bush in 2012? Mr. Rove first says with a tone of skepticism, "Ask Jeb." LINK

The only thing I believe about Rove resigning?

6-8 Capitol Police officers will no longer be guarding his DC house full time, and we won't be signing snarky Christmas carols in front of his house this year.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
