“There is a God!” exults the Buzzflash Update this morning, while news accounts tell us Porky Pig’s evil twin will soon exit the White House, despite “the great loss to us” cited by spokesbimbo Dana Perino.

Don’t form a conga line too fast, folks. Private Citizen Rove can be a great deal more dangerous off the public payroll than on it.

The idea that he’s among rats deserting the sinking ship is belied by Rove’s remarks to Paul Gigot of the Wall Street Journal. In this column, he predicts Shrub’s resurgence in the polls, thanks to factional fights among Dems this fall and presidential spending vetoes, and “a good chance” of Republican victory next year over “fatally flawed” Hillary Clinton. Does that sound like a dude who’s given up?

A few comments I’ve seen suggest that he’ll emerge from semi-retirement to back a candidate, which isn’t out of the question. However, my own anticipation is that he’ll work feverishly under the radar to make any Democratic presidential candidate appear as flawed as Hillary is — by doing things too vile even for His Supreme Odiousness to attempt from a perch at the White House.

In line with the old adage about keeping one’s friends close and one’s enemies closer, I very much fear that losing sight of this powerful foe can’t be a plus for the progressive cause.

  2. Funny you should mention the “Dunwalke” material, Malcolm. I saw reference to that on another blog just a couple of days ago and have begun reading there. It’s fascinating stuff from a presumably unassailable source.

    Can’t remember where I saw info about the CIA drug-running. That was a while back.

    At this point, I wouldn’t put ANYTHING past them. Questioning that there’s a conspiracy at the top no longer shows a want of imagination, but simply a want of research.

  5. Well put, like a shot put to the stomach. Speaking of which it will take a strong stomach to put up with what is coming down the road. Would we rather the facade of what we call ‘democracy’, or an ‘in-your-face’ Bush declaring what already seems to be de facto dictatorship? Shall we vote on that just so we can say it is an option?

    One look back as indicator of what was, what is and what will be…
    In an article titled Dillon Read & Co. Inc., (http://www.dunwalke.com/) Katherine Austin Fitts writes about the Congressional investigating committee established after the plain crash in Honduras involving Eugene Hassenfuss. Fitts footnotes a paragragh from Chris Sanders, head of Sanders Research:(http://www.solari.com/gideon/q301.pdf)
    “The investigation resulted in no fewer than 14 individuals being indicted or convicted of crimes. These included senior members of the National Security Council, the Secretary of Defense, the head of covert operations of the CIA and others. After George Bush was elected President in 1988, he pardoned six of these men. The independent counsel’s investigation concluded that a systematic cover up had been orchestrated to protect the President and the Vice President… During the course of the independent counsel’s investigation, persistent rumors arose that the administration had sanctioned drug trafficking as well as a source of operational funding. These charges were successfully deflected with respect to the independent counsel’s investigation, but did not go away. They were examined separately by a Congressional committee chaired by Senator John Kerry, which established that the Contras had indeed been involved in drug trafficking and that elements of the U.S. government had been aware of it.”

    I have heard that Kerry was asked(told) to drop the investigation by Congressional Democratic Party leaders.

    There used to be a band out of Austin, Tx called Asleep at the Wheel. Maybe they could do an appropriate version of our national anthem.
