Re: The impending resignation of Karl Rove, presidential Svengali and wedge-politics guru.
A few points:
*Rove, Prince of Partisan Politics, never should never have been allowed around policy. The country is worse off for it.
*He was really, really good at one thing: Getting George W. Bush elected multiple times. He did whatever it took – from polarization to pander fests to dirty tricks. Donald Sagretti on steroids.
*Lee Atwater never looked so ethical.
*Enough damage for now. Time to cash in. Can you say book deal and GOP lecture circuit?
*Please, don’t anyone present him the Presidential Medal of Freedom on the way out. Even if it’s the one that George Tenet felt compelled to give back.
