Bush's Brain

I'm as offended as anyone by Karl Rove's screed whilst speaking to George Pataki, et al the other night, and the counterattack coming from the left is, largely, absolutely spot-on in content and tone. But no one should forget what this is really about, and no one should fail to hammer the point home when commenting to the media:

Doctor Rovenstein's monster has approval ratings in the low 40's. What was once referred to as a Key Front in the War on Terrah is now commonly referred to as Bush's War. Junior's Secretary of Defense spent the morning browbeating the Senate by admitting that he has in fact tendered his resignation on (at least) two occasions, and the abridged version of the CIA's latest assessment on Iraq is basically "we reeeeeeeally fucked this up." Doctor Rovenstein sent his boy on a two-month roadtrip, pocketses stuffed with political capital, to push the Crown Jewel of his domestic policy this term, and all he got back from the American people was a T-shirt saying "Don't Screw with My Retirement."

Doctor Rovenstein's monster has approval ratings in the low 40's. Of course he's going to make a lot of desperate, offensive and incendiary comments about the opposition party. At this point, he has few other options.
