Karl Rove

Back in October (!) I wrote a piece for this blog about Karl Rove's loyalties and two differing scenarios. You can read that original post here. It's worth another look.

I point it out because I outlined the two likely scenarios that Rove had facing him before the mid-term elections.

It seems as though he played exactly into the second scenario I described and his loyalties aren't exactly with Bush, but with the party.

Here's another post (from back in October) that outlines why Rove is bad for the political scene in general. It's an interesting shift in Bush politics to have Rove leave, but at the end of the day, Rove is still a bad man. And what if this decision to leave is part of an insulating strategy to prevent further damage in this whole Plame Affair? Who knows.

Sadly, Rove knows what he's doing and he's not going to stop putting poison in the political watering hole (so to speak) anytime soon.

Too bad.
