Karl Rove - The Architect or Turd Blossom ?

*
Karl Rove * President Bush * Iraq Casualties

Karl Rove exits center stage. That, however, does not mean that he will quietly settle down somewhere. We are going to hear of him in a new role......perhaps as adviser to one of the Republican presidential contenders. The nefarious, Machiavellian Rove served the president well by capitalizing on divisive issues and orchestrating dirty tricks. Some one like Milt Romney, who seems to like every bad thing that President Bush has done, would be happy to add Rove to his team.

As to the president's pet names for Rove, "Turd Blossom" is more appropriate by far than "the architect".

  • Turd Blossom, according to partisans of Karl Rove and George Bush, is a Texan term for a flower which grows from a pile of cow dung. The term has gained notoriety in the United States as reportedly this is one of President George W. Bush's terms of endearment for his former chief political advisor, Karl Rove. Bush is also reported to call Rove by the nickname ”Boy Genius.“
  • Few, if any, native Texans would recognize this definition of 'turd blossom.' 'Turd blossom' was used in 1960s Texas high school slang to describe the spreading smell of a fart, or the spreading stain of a loose bowel movement. Neither Rove nor George W. Bush attended high school in Texas, and they may have been unfamiliar with the original use of the word. 'Fart blossom' was a common variant. (Source: Wikipedia)
