Democratic talking points re: Card's resignation: Use nautical metaphors
From NY Times:
Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York called the shuffle "simply rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic," according to the Reuters news agency. And Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois said, "If the White House is looking to change course, they picked the wrong person to toss overboard."
Mr. Durbin, you don't change course by throwing someone overboard. Mr. Bolten seems to know the ropes. So while while Andy Card walks the plank, Dick Cheney can scuttle the remaining dignity of the Administation. At least Bush is going down with the ship...I'm spent.
