I don't understand how a person could spend their life sucking up to the man that calls them "Turdblossom".

But Karl Rove has, and George Bush has reaped the benefits.

Rove will soon find out about his benefits, because Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald is wrapping up his investigation of who leaked the identity of a covert CIA officer, whose husband made the mistake of telling the truth.

If Rove is indicted, convicted and sent up the river, his experience at sucking up to the powerful will give him a leg up.

Fitzgerald is weighing Rove's foggy-memory defense against evidence he has
acquired over nearly 2 1/2 years that shows Rove was very involved in White
House efforts to beat back allegations that Bush twisted U.S. intelligence to
justify the Iraq war, according to sources involved in the case.

That evidence includes details of a one-week period in July 2003 when Rove
talked to two reporters about Plame and her CIA role, then reported the
conversations back to high-level White House aides, according to sources in the
case and information released by Fitzgerald as part of the ongoing leak

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
