"Bush's Brain" Loses a Few More Cells

That so-called political genius everyone on the right touts? Apparently, he's losing his touch:


Fox News has trumpeted its acquisition of former top White House aide Karl Rove as a political analyst in recent days. But is the "fair and balanced" news network getting its money's worth from President Bush's political architect?
One cent is overpayment. One. Cent.
And moments before the Associated Press released clips from Romney's speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference indicating that he would certainly end his candidacy, it did not appear Rove's privileged insights were as well-developed as other commentators in the world of political news.
There are so, so many things about KKKarl that aren't well-developed... I think I'll just leave it at that.

Here's what the Boy Genius said:
"What I'm hearing is that there's a strong sense inside the campaign that he is going to withdraw. I'm not certain that he's necessarily going to withdraw today, in his speech, though that is a possibility," said Rove as he started his informed commentary.
