While on my trip, I found out via Twitter, that Bush’s Brain, aka Karl Rove, had resigned from the floundering administration. While I would much rather have seen him forced out, his departure is none-the-less a thing of beauty. Think Progress has put together a list of many of the major players who have either been “downsized” or “opted out” from what many call the worst Presidency in United States history:

– White House Senior Political Adviser Karl Rove
– White House Counselor Dan Bartlett
– White House Budget Director Rob Portman
– White House Counsel Harriet Miers
– White House Political Director Sara Taylor
– White House Director of Strategic Initiatives Pete Wehner
– White House Deputy National Security Adviser J.D. Crouch
– Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty
– Acting Associate Attorney General William Mercer
– Justice Department White House liaison Monica Goodling
– Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
– Army Secretary Francis Harvey
– Joint Chief of Staffs Chairman Peter Pace
– Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson
– U.N. Ambassador John Bolton
– USAID Director Randall Tobias

Just as a reminder, it is still a full year and a half before W’s term is up. I guess the grass really must be greener. Pretty soon it’ll be just King George and Barney ruling over his disgruntled subjects. Who needs lackeys anyway?
