Bush's brain departs

Farewell Turd Blossom.

Karl Rove's departure from the White House at the end of this month raises a host of interesting questions -- starting with why now. Somehow I'm not satisfied with his explanation that Josh Bolten has decreed leave by Labor Day or stay to the bitter end. Rules have never applied to Rove.

Rove says he headed back to Texas, no doubt interested in building stone walls, on his ranch and for the next round of congressional subpoenas that are likely to sprout like weeds.

In his "announcement" to Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot (an interesting subplot in and of itself) Rove shows the same kind of predictive powers he showed in the 2006 congressional elections, labeling Hillary Clinton a "fatally flawed" candidate and predicting the GOP can retain the White House next year.

In the accompanying Gigot editorial, Rove displays the classic obtuseness that describes the Bush White House -- insistent that the world is wrong, he and Bush are right and they will prevail in the end.

It is that arrogance in the face of overwhelming evidence that will describe Bush and Rove in the history books.

Good riddance. Take your boss (and his boss) with you. The sooner this nightmare ends, the sooner this nation can heal.

With his brain gone, now he is only a heartbeat away from the presidency.

No, that's Cheney. Or is that Pelosi? :-)
