Working up sympathy for Karl Rove

He's weary. his wife and only child, who is approaching college, miss him. He has monstrous legal bills. His unique bond with the President is under stress. His most important work is done.

and that "important work" would be...? perfecting the art of character assassination...? taking the nastiness of politics to staggering new lows...? incorporating delusion and denial into white house policy...? composing the storyboards for the persona of an entirely fictitious president...? contributing to the lies that took us into iraq...? manipulating the electorate's fears by continually invoking scenarios of terrorist attacks...? mighty important work there, karl...
Karl Rove's colleagues don't know exactly when it will happen, but they are already laying out the reasons they will give for the departure of the man President George W. Bush dubbed the architect.


Fitzgerald is continuing to look into the possibility of charging Rove with lying to investigators or the grand jury or both. If that happens, Rove almost certainly would resign immediately.

i take no joy in rove's situation but, at the same time, it's good to see the wheels of karma turning on someone so despicable while i'm still around to see it...
