America's Big Malignant Tumor - Mark Morford
America's Big Malignant Tumor
Libs are salivating that Karl Rove might go down. But hasn't the worst cancer already spread?


It's almost too good to be true. It's almost like you can't hardly believe it and it feels like it must be a nasty trick, a scam, some sexy lithe European fashion model smiling all coy and flirty as she offers you her thong underwear only to yank it away just as you reach for it as she instantly turns back into a hairy incubus and dashes away, cackling. Ohpleaseohpleaseohplease ... yank.

And maybe, if you're like me, deep inside your cynical Bush-ravaged heart you already know it won't actually happen, because no way is the world aligned correctly right now and no way is there any true justice happening anywhere near the White House right now, and what's more, the man in question is perhaps the slipperiest and sweatiest and most powerful adviser of a major world leader since an invisible purple demon hissed sweet nothings into Mussolini's ear, and therefore if anyone could finagle his way into remaining Grand Overlord Puppetmaster for as long as he damn well pleases, it's Karl Rove.

But despite all my doubts, the astonishing news remains: Rove, AKA Bush's Brain, AKA "Turd Blossom" (Bush's nickname for Rove), AKA "The Architect," AKA the most powerful and brilliant and deeply unlikable political thug most people have barely heard of because he's just that kind of secretive nefarious genius the likes of which makes women recoil and flowers wilt and moderate politicians break out in hives, well, Rove might have stepped over the line just far enough to end his current reign as Dark Lord of Shrubtown.

In sum, one could argue that Rove, as part of a multitentacled stratagems to help Bush lie America into war, intentionally blew the cover of an underground CIA agent (Valerie Plame), and did so merely as revenge, as a smear tactic against Plame's husband, who dared suggest, way back when BushCo was downright desperate to mangle CIA intelligence and fabricate any excuse possible to force us into this unwinnable Iraq war, that Saddam might not actually have any WMD at all.

5. I'm Not Giving Up Yet
First of all, the grand jury hasn't finished.

Second of all, the economy still hasn't hit bottom, and more large layoffs are announced every day.

Third, the Fed will continue to squeeze the interest rates, while the dollar sinks slowly into the Sea of China.

And finally, it simply cannot continue in this fashion.

Bush and the GOP have no future--they have eaten their own seed corn and everyone else's. They will be severely punished for it.

Also, I have a gut feeling that Roberts might pull a Souter on the ecstatic Right Wing.
