Rove Resignation: It Was the Coffee!
The owner of theTwin Lakes Nordic Lodge in Twin Lakes, Colo., just sent us this photograph of the billboard outside his inn on the side of Highway 82.
Innkeeper Charlie Gandy is playfully taking credit for Karl Rove's resignation. He's certain: It was his coffee that did it.
You see, it was there, at the Nordic Lodge, where Rove gave the first hint he'd be leaving the White House and writing a book. Rove stopped for a coffee and restroom break at the lodge last month on his way to Aspen to give a talk at the Aspen Institute.
He sure packed a lot into a 15-minute visit. Besides using the loo and drinking a little java, Rove talked to Gandy about his plans to write books after leaving the White House. (The White House confirmed Rove's intent to try "his hand at writing" nonfiction, which the Sleuth reported in this July 24th posting.) Also during that 15-minute interval, another visitor standing in the lobby of the lodge threatened to beat the daylights out of Rove -- a threat that never came to pass.
So Rove should have no problems handling his shotgun when he goes dove hunting Labor Day weekend, which will be his first vacation as a "civilian" upon leaving the White House on August 31st.
