That's Rove in a Corner

Unelected co-president Karl Rove is notorious for his detailed knowledge of polls and demographics. He must have noticed that, according to ABC's latest poll (published in Raw Story), only one quarter of the American public believes the administration is fully cooperating with Fitzgerald's investigation. That's down by ~50% from two years ago, when the investigation began. The same poll reveals that only half of Republicans believe the administration is fully cooperating. But the most disturbing finding for Rove is that "three-quarters say that if presidential adviser Karl Rove was responsible for leaking classified information, it should cost him his job"—and that includes 71% of Republicans. These numbers come on the heels of a slew of polls showing ebbing approval ratings for the president.

This (seemingly) puts Karl Rove in a corner. We're far from even the half-way point of Bush's second term. What if in order to save the president's agenda, Mr. Rove has to step down? Doing so would lobotomize the White House. Will Rove destroy the village in order to save it? Just what is Mr. Rove plotting right now?

UPDATE: Here's the ABC News link.

EVIL BONUS: Evil leftist Arvin wonders where Bush's Dick has gone. That's a good question....
