Blood in the Water, a primary-source document on the continuing shark attacks of the summer of 2005 --- "Great Summer Beach Reading!" sez TBL

Click here, print this out, and read it at the local beach or pool and feel free to laugh and cringe at the good parts. Everyone loves a good story about the circling and feeding frenzies of the sharks when there's blood in the water.

Following the blueprint laid out for such things in the early seventies, once the sharks finish with devouring of the contents of Karl Rove's malodorous skin, the next target needs to be Spiro "Ted" Agnew ... sorry, I mean Richard "Dick" Cheney.

Most of the questions about Rove were answered with the same "ongoing investigation" boilerplate ("I appreciate your question. I think your question is being asked relating to some reports that are in reference to an ongoing criminal investigation. The criminal investigation that you reference is something that continues at this point. And as I've previously stated, while that investigation is ongoing, the White House is not going to comment on it. The President directed the White House to cooperate fully with the investigation, and as part of cooperating fully with the investigation, we made a decision that we weren't going to comment on it while it is ongoing"), but one question about Karl Rove was answered in yesterday's press briefing:

Q One follow-up. Considering the widespread interest and the absolutely frantic Democrat reaction to Karl Rove's excellent speech to conservatives last month, does the President hope that Karl will give a lot more speeches?

MR. McCLELLAN: He continues to give speeches. He was traveling this weekend talking about the importance of strengthening Social Security. And he has continued to go out and give speeches.

Here's my question. How did Jeff Gannon get back into the press pool?? He'd better watch out swimming in that bloody water or the sharks will get him too!

Do I need to point out that I'm rootin' for the sharks?
