I don't have enough of an opinion on the politics surrounding the whole Rove thing to really take a stand either way. But when somebody makes such an articulate case comparing Rove to the "calculating, corpulent and very good at self-preservation" Falstaff it merits a mention. I wasn't about to pass up an article that has gems such as this one: "It's time for Bush II to be less Prince Hal and more Henry V. There is no better, smarter or meaner political operative than Karl Rove. But Bush II cannot afford to keep Falstaff on staff." It even reads like a Shakespeare lesson :)!
