I just like to hear them say it

Some years ago, I attended a lecture by Don Brash (then opposition finance spokesperson) as part of a political seminar series. His icebreaker was a joke about a man who goes to the bank, and is turned away because the bank manager is dead. He keeps going back, and keeps being turned away for the same reason, until finally some annoyed teller asks him why he keep scoming back, and doesn't he understand that the bank manager really is dead. His response is "I know; I just like to hear them say it".

This describes perfectly my reaction to the headline on BBC that Top White House aide Rove resigns.

Bye bye, Turd Blossom, we won't miss you.
