Re: BETCHA PAYCHECK ROVE GETS CLIPPED
Clipped in the sense that he will be terminated. Terminated as in fired, sakked. asked to resign, pink slipped.
After which, as a freewheeling consultant he will still serve as Bush's cerebral cortex. Any bets?
To which rayban1 responded
How would I [Rove] get paid?..........in confederate money?
1. Rove resigns because of furor. Bush publicly praises "outgoing" advisor.
2. Acolyte of Rove takes over his job, much as Rove was himself an acolyte of Lee Atwater.`
3. Rove gets job at large oil company in charge of paper clip distribution, at several hundred thousand dollars yearly plus undisclosed seven figure bonus. Alternative scenario
: Rove gets job at foundation, writing papers on such topics as "Republican Strategies for Upcoming Elections", at similar compensation.
4. New job allows time for Rove to be on phone for long periods of time daily with his acolyte, and on phone for long periods of time weekly with Bush.
That's how Rove gets paid.
