Jay Bookman: Itís time for Karl Rove to float away in a balloon
... a good political strategist has to be willing to listen dispassionately to what the data tell him. He does not yell angrily at that data, like a distraught husband refusing to believe that his wife just left him. In that moment, Rove exposed himself as the petty figure that he is.
As Dorothy Gale, D-Kansas, famously put it, ďWhy, youíre not a wizard at all, youíre just a man! And youíre a very bad man for pretending to be a wizard.Ē
And after that, as I recall, the defrocked wizard floated away in a balloon, unable to steer a new direction because ďI donít know how it works!Ē
Give me the courage to change what I can change, the patience to accept what I cannot change, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of people I had to kill because they pissed me off -- St Francis, Revisited

2. Given his record, we ought to encourage the Pubbies to keep him on.
As far as I'm concerned, he can keep wasting their money as long as they are dumb enough to give it to him. The real danger is that they might hire someone who is "reality based".
