Straight Up’s Calvin Trillin offers this comment on today’s White House resignation:
Farewell to Bush’s brain, Karl Rove,
Whose loss will never drain us;
Now when do we wipe away Dick Cheney,
The boss’s raging anus?
— Leon Freilich
Postscript: Now watch Bill Moyers’s beautiful kiss-off, delivered on Aug. 17:
Karl Rove figured out a long time ago that the way to take an intellectually incurious draft-averse naughty playboy in a flight jacket with chewing tobacco in his back pocket and make him governor of Texas, was to sell him as God’s anointed in a state where preachers and televangelists outnumber even oil derricks and jack rabbits.
And that’s just for starters. Has anybody said it better?
