Card calls out Rove

Remember last week when we told you about Rove's accusation that Democrats in Congress drove the President to war in Iraq? Yeah, I know... we thought he was drunk, too. Either that or he was trying to be funny which is sad because Karl's got the same sense of humor of the opening act at the Shecky Green show in the Catskills ca. 1955.

Apparently, former White House CoS Andrew Card just thought Karl was lying.

Former White House chief of staff Andrew H. Card Jr. was asked on MSNBC yesterday about Rove's comments but told only that Rove asserted Democrats pushed Bush into war. Card laughed and said that "sometimes his mouth gets ahead of his brain."

So did former Press Secretary Ari Fleischer

Ari Fleischer, the White House press secretary at the time, said Daschle had pressed Bush over the summer to bring the matter to Congress but for consultation, not necessarily a vote. Bush decided to seek a vote authorizing force, Fleischer said. "It was definitely the Bush administration that set it in motion and determined the timing, not the Congress," he said. "I think Karl in this instance just has his facts wrong."

That whistling sound you hear are the last shreds of Krazee Karl's credibility falling out of the sky.
