Powers and Abilities Far Beyond Those of Mortal Men

Karl Rove has, I read this morning, been subpoenaed to testify in front of a House committee looking into the U.S. attorney firings. The article mentions that Rove has refused to comply with previous subpoenas, saying that "...former presidential advisers cannot be compelled to testify before Congress."

Interestingly, this is not the only superpower Rove has claimed to have. Over the past decade, Rove--or "Captain Turdblossom", which is his superhero identity--has attributed to himself:
  • super-strength
  • the "ability to cloud men's minds"
  • limited flight
  • "super-breath" (?)
  • shape-shifting
  • "a mystical dong"
It should be noted that this last one was discussed with Maureen Dowd toward the end of the 2003 White House Correspondents' Dinner and has not since been mentioned.

Kurt Skinner of the Brookings Institution has been quoted as saying, "I'm not a continuity-nazi, but I wish they'd decide what powers he has and then stick to it."

Don'cha hope he goes to jail? Smirking superior bad guy. I'm sputtering he makes me so mad. Him and his boss.
I am NOT a nice person.

PS. You're good. You need to blog every day.
Good point.

And I wish we could have some conclusions about the power of the President, while we're at it. When it's a Republican, we're supposed to honor the office and give unquestioning support. When it's a Democrat, he is supposed to honor Congressional Republicans in bipartisanship.

I am so confused!
I don't think you're confused at all, Lisa. You seem to have it exactly right.
