Rove now in charge of everything...


In addition to being responsible for selling the president's agenda, Rove will now be charged with coordinating policy among the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council...

Consider that the Homeland Security Council is supposed to: "Provide advice to the President ... on developing and coordinating the implementation of a comprehensive national strategy to secure the United States from terrorist threats or attacks..." and "advise the President ... on, the effectiveness of the implementation of specific strategies to detect, prepare for, prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist threats or attacks within the United States."

Consider that Karl Rove is an experienced direct mail consultant.

I guess the one good thing about Rove's new central role is that we'll no longer have to wonder whether those Orange Terror Alerts are politically motivated. Now we'll know they are.

Wish I'd said that first...
