Freudenschade, baby! Break out the victory champagne! Karl Rove is resigning according to this Wall Street Journal STORY. Although we all know Karl Rove was indicted 24 business hours ago on May 12, 2006, he will be resigning sans White House lawn frogwalk at the end of August. Yes, the DUmmies are jubilant because Rove won't be there to help Bush in his next campaign. Of course, few of them think that maybe, just maybe, Rove is leaving the White House now to participate in the Republican campaign season coming up after Labor Day as you can see in this THREAD jubilantly titled, "Rove Resigns!!!!!" So what did they expect? That Rove would be content to just sit in the White House to work on Bush's non-existent campaign while the Republican political season kicks into high gear? However, let us not spoil the DUmmie's brief moment of delusional celebration by pointing out the brutal facts to them. So let us join the DUmmie freudenschade celebration in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, entering a Perfect Rovian Storm, is in the [brackets]:
I just heard on ABC News that he is resigning and returning to Texas, for "the sake of his family". I think they said his last day is the end of this month.
[Oh joy! I'm having massive urinations of happiness in my pants!]
Edit, per the Wall Street Journal:
Karl Rove, President Bush's longtime political adviser, is resigning as White House deputy chief of staff effective Aug. 31, and returning to Texas, he said in an interview with Paul Gigot, editor of The Wall Street Journal's editorial page.
Read the editorial by The Wall Street Journal's editorial page editor, Paul Gigot, on his interview with Karl Rove.Mr. Rove, who has held a senior post in the White House since President Bush took office in January 2001, told Mr. Gigot he first floated the idea of leaving a year ago. But he delayed his departure as, first, Democrats took Congress, and then as the White House tackled debates on immigration and Iraq, he said. He said he decided to leave after White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten told senior aides that if they stayed past Labor Day they would be obliged to remain through the end of the president's term in January 2009.
"I just think it's time," Mr. Rove said in the interview. "There's always something that can keep you here, and as much as I'd like to be here, I've got to do this for the sake of my family." Mr. Rove and his wife have a home in Ingram, Texas, and a son who attends college in nearby San Antonio.
In the interview, Mr. Rove said he expects Democrats to give the 2008 presidential nomination to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, whom he described as "a tough, tenacious, fatally flawed candidate." He also said Republicans have "a very good chance" to hold onto the White House in next year's elections.
[Rove knows we own ALL your Diebold machines.]
I'm holding out for the "Bush Resigns!!!" thread. But for now, this thread is pretty good.
[Were you the same DUmmie holding out for the "Rove Indicted!!!" thread in May of last year?]
But my paranoid part wonders if he's got something planned (bad) for the election or before, or if he's getting out while the gettin's good... The guy is Pure Satan.
[The Devil is in the details. Hee! Hee!]
It means that after August. Little Georgy is on his own.
[Little Georgy will never have Rove's help in any of his future elections.]
Will he have to honor his subpoena then?
[He will honor it in 24 business hours.]
I don't trust this one bit. He's got something up his sleeve.
[Your wallet, my gullible little DUmmie. Hee! Hee!]
I'm sure we haven't seen the last of Rove. He will be a kingmaker for the repubs that is for sure
[Gee. Ya think?]
Cockroaches never really leave. The real question is which Republican Presidential candidate will Rove be slithering for?
[I'm sort of hoping the Rovian Roach slithers over to Camp Mitt.]
I'd rather see "Rove Admits Himself to Mental Institution"
[Attention William Rivers Pitt! You may soon be getting a new roommate in the Ward 8 Rubber Room!]
Did the woman who went to jail over the debate tape sent to Gore in 2000 confess that she took the rap for Rove?
[Was that Lucy Ramirez who faxed TANG documents to Rove from the Amarillo Kinko's?]
Whose brain does that parasite invade now? Whose campaign manager will he be come?
[It's not polite to bite your fingernails in public.]
He's the sharpest arrow in their quill. He's not retiring into the sunset, not somebody this icky and evil.
[Break out the Guy Fawkes masks!]
Was Rove hired away by Kucinich?
[Only to feed inside campaign information to a rival campaign like a certain Temporary Sockpuppet did.]
Could there be more to this? I don't think I am buying that he is leaving because of family at all!
[No, no, my little DUmmie. Sleep well. No need to worry. Let us tuck you in and pay no attention to that Perfect Rovian Storm outside.]
The only thing I know for sure is that KKKarl is NOT leaving just to "spend time with his family."
