RoveWatch Day 3: 'Turd Blossom' Still on Hotseat

Ya gotta love our president. Only in BushWorld can a nickname like "Turd Blossom" be a term of endearment; a moniker for a great friend and trusted, loyal ally. Well, 'ole Turdy was on the hotseat yet again today, this time with the president perhaps putting some distance between himself and what I hope to be his soon-to-be-former top advisor. While Karl Rove sat just a few feet behind Bush at a cabinet meeting, that closeness seemed to be in physicality only. Given opportunities to publicly defend Rove, the best Bush could muster was "This is a serious investigation. And it is very important for people not to prejudge the investigation based on media reports.'' I'm sure Rove was just thrilled with that emphatic vote of confidence. Over at the White House press room, another day of ScottieBall took place at the daily briefing. After three days of getting kicked around by journalists, press secretary Scott McClellan declared,''It may not look like it, but there's a little flesh that's been taken out of me the past few days.'' Get used to it, Scottie. Until your boss and Turdy B come clean, your head has 'soccer ball' written all over it. Give those Repubbies credit. Their well-oiled spin machine this week has spit out talking points faster than Bush's approval ratings have plummeted: Rove's a victim; Rove's being smeared by the Left; Rove's a true, honest American; He never mentioned Plame by name; Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...Now what they're all hoping for is for Bush to nominate someone to the Supreme Court so that that battle can hog the news and drag attention away from bad boy Rove. Well my friends, if that happens, I promise to keep the spotlight on 'ole Turd Blossom as long as these trusty fingers can still type. I will not be distracted! Andy
