Rove resigns, Bush dies?

A suggested title for an upcoming Onion story:

KARL ROVE RESIGNS

Analyst consensus: Without Rove, President Bush would never have been born; Friends suggest Laura should begin planning funeral arrangements
Comical how in virtually all the media reports on Rove's departure, two contradictory points are emphasized:

1) Rove was not only the architect of political campaigning, but of everything from staffing concerns to foreign poilcy issues, and 2) Nobody knows what took place in conversations between Rove and Bush, because that has all been kept under wraps.

In any case, that Rove is jumping ship as the GOP sinks below the surface should be a stark reminder of just how fallacious is the myth that Rove is some kind of political mastermind.
