“Mr. Rove said he had forgotten the call, one of hundreds he participates in each day.”

A repentant Karl Rove admitted yesterday to a grand jury investigator that he could not recall a conversation with a journalist in which he revealed the secret code to White House situation room “nuke” buttons. In a sixteen hour work day, Mr. Rove, commented, he makes a phone call at least every minute. “I have even forgotten that I talked to President Bush a minute ago,” he said, pressing speeddial.

Fast-forwarding through the umpteenth ad for Big American Car in my quest for 2 minutes of olympic athleticism, I am coming to the conclusion that our economy is in desperate straights. If you don’t run out NOW and buy a Big American Car we’re going to hit the skids, pass on, be no more, cease to be, expire and meets our maker, go stiff, bereft of life, rest in peace, push up daisies, go off the twig, an’ kick the bucket; If you don’t mortgage your house NOW and buy another huge honking SUV this country will shuffle off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and join the bleedin’ choir invisibile!!
go team SUVica!
