Sports Book Odds on Karl Rove's Departure : 1-6

Sports Book is giving odds on Karl Rove being fired or resigning:

Washington, D.C. (July 20, 2005) - Sportsbook.com has entered the fray in the latest political storm to rock the White House by offering odds on the future of its Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove. The opening line is that Rove will not be dismissed or resign in the wake of an ongoing criminal investigation, with odds at 1-6.

The betting line is a reflection of President Bush's seeming flip-flop on the issue based on comments he has offered since the scandal broke in 2003. Initially, Bush said he would fire anyone from the administration found to have been the source of the leak. After Rove was revealed to be the source, however, Bush said he would only dismiss an administration official who had engaged in criminal activity.

    He needs prison and prison will help him, and think of all the good food this guy will get. prison and bush and help with good food, the way to go for most of our non government.

    1-6 seems about right. I would like to see him fall for this, but when you have the power he has, and knows the people he knows, it is hard to bring a man like that down

    Thank god. Rove is just one more big albatross for Bush to hang around his neck. I'm happy just to see him in the spotlight because about 70% of Americans had no idea who he was before last week. I bet a portly, balding, malicious, simpering, ugly SOB like him plays real well with the true 'muricans. Who wouldn't want to crack open a couple of cold ones with Karl?

    et al - That's a sucker house bet:
    The opening line is that Rove will not be dismissed or resign in the wake of an ongoing criminal investigation, with odds at 1-6.
    "will not" 1 in 6 becomes "will be" at 5 to 1.

    i just gotta say...ha ha ha ha ha...good one

    Yeah, maybe frog march is too much to hope for. But the frog part is a slander on frogs, anyway. Cockroach.
