With Its RoveCo, Inc. Stock In Freefall, The Washington Post Still Doesn't Get It

From the WaPo editorial on Karl Rove's resignation:

Mr. Rove is a history buff, and we think that history's ultimate judgment will not depend much on his role in the scandals of the moment -- "Plamegate" and the firings of U.S. attorneys -- to which some attribute his resignation. Rather, he should be judged on his own terms: as the would-be architect of a long-lasting Republican majority, like the one Hanna forged more than a century ago. The GOP's wipeout in 2006 would suggest that Mr. Rove did not achieve this goal, notwithstanding his brave parting words about Republican victory in 2008. And if the manufactured polarization of the Bush-Rove years did not even serve its ostensible purpose, then what was the good of it?

Bang head against wall. Repeat.

"What was the good of it?"

Lying, cheating, and stealing in order to "win" elections for George Simple-Minded Bush had nothing to do with governing, WaPo asshats, and you know it.

So stop pretending that it did.

Your 67 WaPo articles about Rove since July 16th have nothing to do with governing, either. Mostly, they represent the WaPo's fact-facing "Oh, shit! People who hate Rove aren't buying our paper, so we should turn on him" realization and your current "We have always hated Karl Rove. Can't you tell?" marketing strategy.

Too little.

Way too late, WaPo.

You invested in RoveCo, Inc. a long time ago, and now you're stuck with the worthless paper you printed your love letters on.

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

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

Who fault?

The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......

Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....
