Rove operative to change roles

By Libby

It appears to be official. Rove's star pupil in political sabotage, Tim Griffin, now the U.S. attorney in Arkansas who became the face of the ongoing attorney purge scandal, has resigned effective Friday. Think Progress and Raw Story flesh out Griffin's history of hackery which runs all the back to an illustrious record of political back stabbing during the Clinton administration and minority voter disenfranchisement in 2004.

Meanwhile, via TPMmuckracker, it appears Mr. Griffin won't be unemployed for long. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Griffin is being wooed for a top spot in Fred Thompson's impending presidential campaign. I think that pretty much says it all, as Rummy might have said, about the unknown knowns of the mysterious non-declared candidate who has managed to ride to top of popular opinion by so far appearing presidential while saying exactly nothing of substance through creative use of technology.

Unfortunately for him, I think the public has bought that hat trick one too many times and Mr. Thompson will find that no matter how good a coach Griffin may be, simply acting the part is no longer enough to get a ticket to the Oval office. The real winner in this arrangement will be Griffin, whom I assume will command a hefty salary as a prince among smearmeisters.
