Rove Resigns; I'm Too Gun Shy to Celebrate

My biggest question is, "WHY?" After all those years of dirty tricks and crooked campaigns and stolen elections. Is his work finished? There's a scary thought: Nothing left to destroy. The world well on its way to WW III, the Bill of Rights destroyed, Congress made irrelevant, SCOTUS packed for years to come, the nation's wealth redistributed and/or shipped overseas... What else?

One thing about this crime syndicate: When you think it can't get any worse, it does. Ashcroft was bad; then we got Gonzo. Harriet Myers was ridiculous; we got Alito instead. I've always thought of Rove as the real President/dictator, not Cheney. So now that Rove will be gone, will Cheney go absolutely berserk? It's hard to imagine which of those crazies kept the other one in check.

One rumor has it that Cheney's been pissed at losing his office boy, Scooter, while Rove remained untouched. Or is this some strange maneuver to avoid the Congressional subpoena? With all the claims of executive privilege to keep everything secret, what will he be able to put in his book?

Nature abhors a vacuum; what if no one takes his place? Could anarchy in this White House be worse than blind loyalty? Will we get another old crony, like a Karen Hughes? Or someone new, like a Sarah Taylor promotion? Who could possibly carry on the tradition of know-it-all wrongheaded stubbornness? Jeb? Ahhhhh...

Bill Kristol.

We can only get kicked in the teeth and look like we deserved it so many times. I'm with you.
