2005_07_rover.jpgPresident Bush is an awesome friend. If you're Karl Rove. See, he nominated John Roberts (not the CBS guy...just a judge who looks suspciously like Pat Sajak) to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court, and Gothamist can't help but think the nomination came to stifle the news that Karl Rove - and an aide to Vice President Cheney - could very well have been the smoking gun in naming an undercover CIA operative. He managed to get on the cover of Time and Newsweek, only to make us realize he looks a lot like Brian Posehn. Will having a conservative Supreme Court nominee be enough to knock the leak story off A1 for long? Well, at least there's the Daily Show.

And our post's title is a nod to the delicious purveyor of cheesesteaks, Carl's Steaks. Mmm...cheesesteak.
