On the Prowl in UP: Name that Politician

The industrious Merritt Patterson sent an e-mail this morning with this message:

Who is this guy? He’s someone political and important because everyone has stopped by introducing themselves and saying how much they admire him. He seems to be discussing politics and has mentioned the White House several times. … Now yes talking about what Mrs. Bush wants.

Along with it was this blurry iPhone photo:Name that politician

It’s Karl Rove, right? That was my guess. I’m betting that our very own Glenn Hunter is in his office right now, kicking himself for not having breakfast at Kuby’s.

    Clearly it’s the love child of Ken Lay, Karl Rove, and Ken Starr.

  2. Daniel says:

    It’s not Karl Rove. But maybe everybody thinks he is, and he doesn’t want to disappoint them.

  3. Daniel says:

    P.S. He actually looks like John Dean.

    Merritt says he’s answering to “Karl.” But you could be right, Daniel.
    If it is Rove, he’s probably in town for this: http://www.ncpa.org/evn/sumners/2008/chris_wallace.html
    (he’s done it before: http://www.ncpa.org/evn/2007/karl_rove.html)

  9. If it is Karl, he’s a week early.
