If you notice the Internet running a bit slower today you can bet it's due to the shitstorm of activity in the blogosphere kicked up by Karl Rove's announcement that he is resigning from the Bush administration effective August 31. But if you think this day of reckoning is a sign that we may be finally seeing the end of this most awful Bush/Cheney/Rove era, think again. Rove has said that he timed this announcement so as to leave on his own terms and not allow the lefty bloggers any credit for his resignation. I think the pending Presidential election and results from this weekend's non-binding Iowa straw poll have something to do with it too. Me thinks Rove is about to fatten his wallet with some Romney cash, leaving poor old John McCain even further in the woods.
