Buh-Bye, Turd Blossom

OK, this one’s for real:
Karl Rove, President Bush's longtime political adviser, is resigning as White House deputy chief of staff effective Aug. 31, and returning to Texas, marking a turning point for the Bush presidency. [...]

He said he decided to leave after White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten told senior aides that if they stayed past Labor Day they would be obliged to remain through the end of the president's term in January 2009.

In the story, Rove also looks into his crystal ball and predicts Hilary Clinton will get the Democratic nomination, the Republicans will win in 2008, the Iraq surge will be a resounding success, and President Bush’s approval ratings will rise.

Okie dokie.
