“Karl Rove is quitting as President Bush’s senior political adviser at the end of this month.
Mr Rove says he is proud to have been a witness to history being made, during his years at the White House.”
(taken from www.tv3.co.nz)
Karl Rove is proud. To have been a witness. To history. Being made.
I don’t know a lot about politics, but even I can say that nobody in their right mind should be proud of the sort of history that’s been made during George W. Bush’s time in office.
After looking Mr. Rove up on wikipedia.org, having not known much about him myself, I found some strange lines of quote.
He (Rove) has often been referred to as “Bush’s Brain”
But at least the guy doesn’t take himself too seriously. Apparently he got up and improvised a rap song with Brad Sherwood and Colin Mochrie of Whose Line is it Anyway?, referring to himself as MC Rove, at the Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington. He also claims his pasttimes are ripping off the heads of animals and stamp collecting. So either this man is really the genius, witty man portrayed, or he’s just insane enough to say something like ‘George Bush sure is smart’. George Bush, the man who for some reason can’t wipe the stupid simian smile off his face when he’s talking about the war in Iraq.
