Bush and the Turd Blossom

So—surprise, surprise—in spite of claims to the contrary, Bush has allegedly known about Rove’s role in the Plame leak since 2003:

An angry President Bush rebuked chief political guru Karl Rove two years ago for his role in the Valerie Plame affair, sources told the Daily News.

"He made his displeasure known to Karl," a presidential counselor told The News. "He made his life miserable about this."
Rove’s life is miserable, huh? Really? Because as far as I can tell, he’s still got his cushy, well-paid job, and the administration has been consistently lying to protect him from criminal prosecution. Until Rove’s either in jail where he belongs or out on his ass and worried about whether he’s going to lose his house(s), I don’t really think his life is all that bad.

Bush has already circled the wagons around Rove, whose departure would be a grievous blow to an already shell-shocked White House staff and a President in deep political trouble.

Asked if he believed indictments were forthcoming, a key Bush official said he did not know, then added: "I'm very concerned it could go very, very badly."

"Karl is fighting for his life," the official added, "but anything he did was done to help George W. Bush. The President knows that and appreciates that."
In other words, in spite of the fact that Rove committed treason, outing a covert CIA operative working on weapons proliferation in the Middle East while we’re engaged in a war in Iraq for which the primary justification was WMDs, Bush remains more loyal to him than to the country, nevermind than to Valerie Plame, who did nothing but serve her country honorably. Bush has looked her and the rest of the nation in the face and said, “Fuck you. Karl turned my pathetic ass into the leader of the free world. What have you useless fucks done for me lately?”

A proud day to be an American, no?
