The President's right-hand man, Karl Rove, the mastermind behind most of the Republican dirty tricks that got Bush in office twice, as well as the puppetmaster behind so many of the scandals that the GOP is still smarting from, is tapping out early.

By the hair of his chinny chin chins he escaped having to testify under oath when his boys got caught outting a CIA agent in the middle of a war because they were upset about a column in the newspaper that her husband wrote.

As Rove cuts and runs, it's fascinating to how the GOP columnists and bloggers try to spin this ultimate surrender.
