You Can't Even See Rove's Lips Moving

Via TPM, with a jump to TPM Cafe, this take is a companion piece to my view of the likelihood of Rove being fired from yesterday. Per Marshall Whittmann:

Rove is the nerve center of today's Republican Party. The White House is already lowering the bar for punishment in the Plame case. Unless, the prosecutor has the goods on Karl, he stays. The President and the GOP has no choice. Rove is the closest in Washington to the indispensable man.
Rove goes and Bush has nothing to say. Considering how badly he expresses himself with Rove talking in his ear, imagine if he has to venture out on his own. He would get laughed out of office. The Republican Party won't let that happen.
