Daily Brushback: Red Rove(r) red Rove(r) send Karl on over

Today’s question is President George W. Bush.

LP: Mr. President, in two separate instances in autumn of 2003 you and your spokesman, Scott McLellan, made clear that if whoever leaked the name of Valerie Plame to the press worked at the White House, that person would be fired. Since we abhor those who would give aid and comfort to America’s enemies, we wholeheartedly applaud that unqualified support for our intelligence community. Now that it has become clear that the leak was in fact your right-hand man (or, in the snarky view of some administration critics, your immediate superior) Karl Rove, when can we expect you to act on your promise and your obligation to those who risk their lives in service to our great nation? In the event you decide not to honor your word, can you give us some idea what your next spectacular breach of trust with the nation will be so we can get started with our background research?

  1. *cackles*… yeah, I’d like to see the Sith Lord sneak out of this one. Though I wouldn’t put it beneath them to gin up some fake threat or even a fake smokescreen scandal to hide the story and give themselves enough time to cover it up…

  2. Your fellow brush back users
    Did you see this White House Press Conference from July 11???
    a highlight:
    MR. McCLELLAN: And again, David, I’m well aware, like you, of what was previously said, and I will be glad to talk about it at the appropriate time. The appropriate time is when the investigation —
    Q Why are you choosing when it’s appropriate and when it’s inappropriate?
    MR. McCLELLAN: If you’ll let me finish —
    Q No, you’re not finishing — you’re not saying anything. You stood at that podium and said that Karl Rove was not involved. And now we find out that he spoke out about Joseph Wilson’s wife. So don’t you owe the American public a fuller explanation? Was he involved, or was he not? Because, contrary to what you told the American people, he did, indeed, talk about his wife, didn’t he?
    MR. McCLELLAN: David, there will be a time to talk about this, but now is not the time to talk about it.
    Q Do you think people will accept that, what you’re saying today?

  3. And you know what? I’ll feel really smug and satisfied if Bush and the higher-ups decide they don’t need ol’ Karl anymore and let him take the rap for it… seeing infighting divide and destroy your enemies is almost as satisfying as doing it yourself.

  4. As you sow, so shall you reap. Karma may not exist, but causality is an even worse bitch. He deserves a lot worse than I’m sure he’s going to get. He and Kissinger and a few others will be sharing a room in the Hotel Infernal someday, metaphorically speaking. Next to the noisy ice machine that only the devil gets to use. And there will be NO MINTS ON THE PILLOWS.

  5. That’s some kind of wacked thing that happens on the comment page only, far as I know. It’s not supposed to, but it does. I guess I need to change the scheme.
