Alaska Gold Rush…….in Florida

From The New York Times:

It is not often that a local government tries to turn down $10 million in federal construction money.
But then it is not every day that an Alaska congressman surprises a Florida community with the gift of a highway interchange that just happens to abut the property of a major political fund-raiser.

The money for the interchange was the work of Representative Don Young, the Alaska Republican who was chairman of the transportation committee before the last election.

The Bad Rumor Man

Karl? Karl who? The White House is running away from Karl Rove as quickly as Rethuglicans are running away from Chimpy George W. Bush.

From the Houston Chronicle:

Reducing Rove’s stature as he leaves could help the administration in the same way that Donald Rumsfeld’s departure as secretary of defense temporarily eased pressure on the president’s Iraq war policy.

White House aides deny they are engaging in spin.

Spokeswoman Dana Perino said she was just trying to humanize Rove when she told a Fox News interviewer about his creation of the Friday ice cream tradition.

Ice cream!!! Old Turdblossom can’t be all bad!

The Real Reasons Turdblossom is Leaving

From CNN International:

An emotional Karl Rove characterized his tenure in the White House as a “witness to history” as he announced his resignation as President Bush’s senior political adviser at the end of this month.
…snip…
“It seems the right time to start thinking about the next chapter in our family’s life,” Rove said, his voice breaking. “It’s not been an easy decision.”

You Want Freedom Fries With that Hotdog, Pickles?

From Independent Online:

Cecilia Sarkozy’s decision to bow out of a picnic with the president of the United States this weekend is the latest proof of the French first lady’s unpredictable, even rebellious take on her new role.

Yep, Chimpy and Pickles threw a big ol’ barbecue, and the First Lady of France didn’t show up! 😆
