Even with distracting timing of SC nominee : Rove's odds SUCK
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 08:08 PM by BelgianMadCow

Professional odds makers have entered the political controversy over White House aide Karl Rove, offering 4-1 odds he will be dismissed or resign.

Rove is accused of leaking the name of an uncover CIA operative to Washington reporters in 2003 to discredit an outspoken critic of the Bush administration's plans to go to war in Iraq. Deliberate outing of a CIA agent can a federal offense.

Sportsbook.com Wednesday set odds that Rove, President Bush's long-time political adviser and deputy chief of staff, will not be fired or resign at 1-6.

Much of the world continues to be fixated on American political developments. So, it only makes sense to give bettors the chance to wager on the outcome of issues like the Rove scandal or yesterday's Supreme Court nomination, says Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com.

from over here, found while searching google news on Rove.

my bet is, the timing of the SC announcement was intended to lower the fire under Rove's lardy **s. But it will only be a drop of water on a red-hot plate.

Go Fitz!
Go Conyers!
Go David Gregory!

1. When did D. Gregory grow a pair?
That was weird to see that. Cool, but weird. Rove is staying and we all know it. Sigh.
