Karl Rove, possibly one of the worst people in US modern politics that has had the misfortune to make it in the big leagues, is allegedly leaving service of his beloved Bushie and riding his burro, Porky Pig style, into the sunset.
Awwwww, so sad. Apparently he's off to be with family.
Poor family. I wonder what he will do to be entertained? Try push polling against the neighbours where he calls up the one he likes and says 'would you be less likely to go to a BBQ at Deb's if she A) was a lesbian or B) had a black bastard baby or C) was likely a pederast?"
Harsh eh? Well, Rove is alleged to have done all three of those to political opponents at one time or another.
I know politics is a tough game. But there's a reason many people think many politicians are lying scheming devious back stabbing pricks who will lie to the people's faces all the while screwing them over on behalf of special interests. It's people like Karl Rove.
Adios Rove. I wonder what historians will think of you? Probably not well. Unless, of course, the US ends up as an effective dictatorship and the Gobbels esq plotting and sheer political bastardy you and you ilk employed (like ringing up black people to tell them they couldn't vote if they had unpaid fines) is taught in 'how to' classes.
