Everyone wants to welcome Karl Rove back to Texas

Looks like we here in Texas aren't the only ones who want to give Karl Rove a warm welcome back to Texas. Howie Klein, Firedoglake, and others associated with the Blue America 08 PAC all joined in to give the Rover a warm welcome home. It's a bit late in the day, but it's not too late for you to do that, too. It's just the neighborly thing to do.

It's also only fair, if Rove is planning to keep his hand in campaigns by helping out his buddy John Cornyn:

As Rove returns to the Hill Country home in Texas he and his wife, Darby, bought and refurbished, the party in which he invested his energy, if not his soul, is divided among social and economic conservatives. Even Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a one-time moderate who drank the Kool-Aid with the Christians in the Texas Republican Party, is in trouble with the state's voters. Cornyn, like Bush, was a creation of Karl Rove. Maybe Rove can save a Senate seat, if not his soul, by quietly throwing in with Cornyn's campaign, after he settles back down in the state where it all began.

As we know, Rove has already been throwing in with the Cornyn campaign, though how much of a secret that winds up being remains to be seen. I suppose on the bright side for Rove, he can do this sort of thing now without risking further Hatch Act violations.

UPDATE: Cliff Schecter says "Now I know why everybody has been raving about Noriega".
