Where will Rove rove?
(And damn, why couldn't Bush have been the one to leave?)
Yes, I've been listening to Thom Hartmann again. Some quickly-taken notes:
He's getting out while the getting's good. It will be harder for Congress to come after him; it's all about public opinion, which is driven by our infotainment

He'll most likely create a think tank. Then, the righties can hire him at arm's length. Like Kissinger.

A Big Book Deal: The Repukes will organize a mass-buy of his bible fiction textbook on how to destroy opponents' lives Very Serious Work up so that it hits the New York Times best seller list.

He'll incorporate off shore to avoid paying taxes on the income from the corporation and the book. He'll make a fortune and live evilly ever after.

The good news? Patrick Leahy is still going on with his investigation of Rove's involvement in the mass firing of U.S. Attorneys.

The media by the way, don't congregate in Texas or wherever Rove ends up. Meaning: If Harriet Miers were still in the White House, the subpoena would have been in the news every day, because the news actors reporters are already in D.C., where they can accumulate really swell video quite easily. Essentially, Rove will be out of the easy-to-see picture; therefore he's good for maybe a one-day story which takes the spotlight off of him, and therefore takes the focus off of his nefarious endeavors.
I'm guessing KKKarl won't have all that much time to spend with his family. Pity. Also on Hartmann:
Per Jackson Thoreau, the reason Rove is leaving is connected to Cheney and the scheme he hatched to out Valerie Plame. Rove and Scooter Libby, of course,were central to that criminal enterprise. Rove went to the Grand Jury five times and was about to be indicted. He wasn't, but they did get Libby... who, as we all know, was well-taken care of.

Ever since Libby got nailed, Cheney was angry at Rove for not taking the fall. His theory is that Cheney pushed Rove out.
Related quote from Thoreau: "Perhaps Rove wants to spend more time with his gay stepfather, the one who left Rove and his suicidal mother during Christmas time one year, to talk about "family values."

Then again, Rove could have just wanted that fortune he anticipates making, plus do some "hard work" to cheat the voters, annihilate his enemies, and clinch a win for the Republican presidential nominee.

Rove roves. Dick's a dick, and Georgie Porgie kisses the girls and makes them cry.

The thought of Georgie Schmuckie kissing anyone makes me throw up a little in my mouth.

Well, it did make me throw up, but that is not how the rhyme goes, now, does it.

Rove resigns and everyone says, 'Yes!'... except for one small group of people who are saying 'Noooo!'... that would be his family that he's now going to be spending more time with. Those poor, poor people.

I don't think he even has a real family. I think he rents them.
