The Architect Has Left the Building

The Architect Has Left the Building

Karl Rove was at one time arguably the most powerful Republican in the country--the architect behind fellow Texan President Bush's platforms, a man with a plan. This week that plan was to finally cut and run from Bush's White House; hopefully he took the blue prints with him.

From his vicious attacks on Dems post 9/11 to the Valerie Plame leak scandal in 2005, Rove was no stranger to controversy during his tenure as Deputy Chief of Staff. But becoming the subject of an extensive federal investigation a few months ago might have been just a little too much pressure.

Rove's resignation doesn't officially take effect until the end of the month, but cartoonists just couldn't wait one more day after these seven long years. "Bush's Brain" Karl had it a long time coming.
