Karl Rove Resigns: Today's Cartoon

The way I see it, Karl Rove's resignation as President Bush's Senior political strategist could mean that either the Bush Administration has officially run out of ideas and is basically running out the clock until they leave Washington; or... they've got something so huge cooked-up that not even "Turd Blossom" can give it a rosy scent. Either way, it would appear that the White House is no longer in the business of "selling" its policy to the American public.

In retrospect, I would say that Karl Rove proved himself to be a brilliant peddler of faulty products; and like any good salesmen, had the ability to get his foot in the door, from Washington or Baghdad. Unfortunately, these "must-have" items he so effectively marketed ended up working about as well as a tube of Chinese toothpaste.

But what does he care? For Karl Rove, his legacy is linked directly to the successful "promotion" of Bush's policies, not their disastrous consequences; for which he offers no regrets, no apologies and absolutely no refunds.
