Official A

We know that Patrick Fitzgerald’s “Official A” is Karl Rove. But Joe Cannon over at Cannonfire says it stands for Official Asshole. Thanks, Joe. May it stick like superglue: Karl Rove, Official Asshole. Next week marks the anniversary of a date that surely will live in disgrace, if not infamy--November 2nd, 2004. Was there ever a bunch of criminals as high on themselves as the Bush administration when they bragged of having a mandate one year ago? And since the Official Asshole is the location of Bush’s brain, we can only conclude that it was OA who put these now-notorious words in GWB’s mouth: “Let me put it to you this way: I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it. It is my style.” Twelve months later and the mandate that never was has slipped from the collective GOP memory. And not only has the President spent his political capital, the account is in the red. One year later. Vice President Cheney’s chief of staff Scooter Libby has been charged with committing five crimes and has resigned. The OA may be indicted in a future investigation. The illegal acts pf the President and Vice President may also be under Fitzgerald’s microscope. Chaos reigns in the White House. And the only thing reminiscent of the fascist takeover last November is Bush’s style, which hangs in the air like sewer gas. Go for a ride on your mountain bike, George. Better yet, have a drink. It’s only going to get worse.
