Let's celebrate Dubya losing his brain...

Emotional speeches today as Karl Rove - said to be the brain of President George Bush - announces he is to leave the White House at the end of the month.

The hidden hand of Karl Rove was widely believed to have orchestrated the campaign which may have stopped a Democrat from entering the White House in 2004.

Astonishly, the GOP managed to turn John Kerry's exemplary war record in Vietnam from an asset to a millstone, as the anti-Kerry Swift Boat Veterans for Truth were pushed onto the US airwaves night after night to successfully knock the Democrat's prospects.

The fact that Dubya never went to Vietnam, and Kerry fought for his country seemed to get lost in the hype and spin.

True, the Democrats fought a poor campaign with a weak message in 2004 - as they had done in 2000 when Al Gore won the popular vote for the Democrats, but lost the Presidency in the legal battle of the chads...

But without Karl Rove, Bush may well have been sunk in both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

And today, the world may be a very different place.

So today's news is not a cause for tears.

It's cause for celebration.
