New Blood in White House?

Me thinks... no.

points out the fact that Rove's Replacement isn't a 'fresh perspective,' he's been there since the beginning. Literally.

The man Bush tapped to fill Karl Rove's spot as his policy wizard is none other than Joel Kaplan, who took part in the infamous "Brooks Brothers riot" of 2000. That's when a bunch of Washington GOP operatives, posing as outraged Floridians, waved fists, chanted "Stop the fraud!" and pounded windows in an effort to intimidate officials engaged in the Florida recount effort.

In George Bush's Washington, there's no shame in staging a fake protest to undermine a democratic election, apparently: last year, the Washington Post's Al Kamen noted that "the "rioters" proudly note their participation on resumes and in interviews." Kaplan was even the one to cheekily dub the fracas the "Brooks Brothers Riot."
The reason why BushCo can't get any new blood into their administration is that anybody in their right mind wouldn't want to be associated with rapidly developing cluster fuck?

When the water reaches your knees, follow the rats.
