Looks like he's going to have a hard time staying in the public eye in the months ahead. The only thing he'll have to occupy his time is trying to protect Republican majorities in the House and Senate.
Cheer up, Karl. The Left will always think of you as the guy who spent half of May 12 at the law offices of Patton-Boggs, receiving an indictment from Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. They'll spend years and years gnashing their teeth, trying to figure out how you got away:

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent more than half a day Friday at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm representing Karl Rove.
During the course of that meeting, Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak case, and instructed one of the attorneys to tell Rove that he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order, high level sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said Saturday morning.
Do you think that will provide poor Karl any solace?
Back to the top.
