Karl Rove's brain

I was paging through the City Pages newspaper today when I came across an ad for the upcoming documentary, Bush's Brain. It's about Bush's right-hand man...the man who really runs our country, Karl Rove. It got me thinking, what is behind all of this mess? What IS Rove thinking?

At the end of the day, could it truly be only about money? Because that doesn't sound logical to me. What good is a fistful of dollars when the world is crumbling at your feet?

This fitting proverb is on the cover of the new Northern Sun merchandising catalog:

Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money.

You're right, you can't take it with you, eh!

Karl Rove's brain... does he actually have one? Of course he does, but what kind of brain is it? Is it the brain of a serial killer that chose politics instead of murdering people? Is it the brain of a hardened criminal who realized you can do better in politics where it's much harder to get caught in wrongdoing (if you align yourself with the right people) than it is to get nailed in the outside world?

I swear, the guy must have devised elaborate tortures for bugs and small animals when he was a kid.
