Pudgy angel-faced devil and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove left the White House under a cloud of reeking suspicion and ignominy. Amazingly, it took Newsweek only three months to scoop him up. Well done! Rove will have a column in which he muses on the 2008 Presidential elections. [Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham also retained the Daily Kos' Markos Moulitsas as a counterpoint to Rove.] To be fair, the man known as "turdblossom" has been remarkably open with the media in the past. After all, he even told Robert Novak all he knew of ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame!
