Unka Karl harrumphs his way into the Senate and quashes any talk of compromise.
In an hour-long interview with USA TODAY and Gannett News Service reporters and editors, Rove, deputy White House chief of staff, dismissed suggestions from Democrats that they might drop threats to use filibusters to prevent votes on Bush’s judicial nominees if the president would withdraw a few of the most controversial names.
Rove also offered further evidence that he has lost his touch by:
• Claiming that Chimpy was making progress with the public in his efforts to destroy Social Security.
• Predicting that John Bolton would be confirmed by the Senate.
• Predicting that Tom DeLay would keep his job as majority leader.
