Think Progress is featuring a small YouTube piece that notes that Karl Rove has apparently skipped the country and he’s AFK (computer-talk: “Away From Keyboard”). T-Progress credits Rove’s attempt to act like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid all wrapped into one because of the newest Congressional subpoena for him to appear and answer questions about the case involving the imprisonment of Alabama’s governor Siegelman. An investigation, if I might add, isn’t expected to be completed until the end of January ’09 – even though US Attorney General Micheal Mukasey says there’s no intentional “slow-down” on the case.
Lars!! The video if you would please…!
“Thank you, Lars!!”
Now let’s speculate:
- Karl Rove decided to go to some obscure town in Bolivia and pretend he that he really is Robert Redford.
- Karl Rove decided to go to some obscure Paraguayan compound owned by the Bush Crime Family, and purchased by Jenna Bush a few years ago while on a visit sponsored by UNICEF. (Hint: “Turd Blossom” will be expected to tidy things up and prepare for His Royal Highness, King George himself to appear on 1/21/09.)
- Karl Rove has decided Paris would be a vacation spot and his odds are better than Donald Rumsfeld’s at not being detected.
Congress has given Karl Rove a 5-day pass, something Karl will also ignore – of course. One has to wonder if the Democrats have any brains by demanding his immediate arrest once he’s decided to return to our shores and resume his duties for the John McCain for President campaign.
