Karl Rove Cast to the Lions?
Informed Comment tells us that Trent Lott appeared on Hardball to question whether Karl Rove should really continue to serve in the administration.
Just Wanna Know remembers that Lott was forced out of his position as Senate Majority Leader after he acted racist, but we know the real reason was because Lott wouldn't play ball with the White House. Bill Frist would, and that relative neophyte was catapulted to the top where he's been struggling ever since to lead the Senate toward Bush's goals.
So it's unclear to JWK whether there's real impetus for Rove to leave, or whether Republicans on the Hill are just continuing to flex their muscles as Bush's approval rating continues to slip.
