Karl Rove, presidential advisor to George W. Bush and long called "The Brain", will resign at the end of the month. This will leave a void in that sinking ship known as The White House with almost 1 1/2 years left in Bush's term and no puppet master to control the strings.
When asked who he wanted to control his actions, words, and movements until the next President took over, Bush was at first stunned. "You mean I don't get to stay here forever?"
After it was explained to him that he had to leave and that Halliburton would not be allowed to serve as an "official" advisor, Bush quickly named a replacement.
The new White House advisor, Brain, and puppet master will be Geppetto.
After making his decision, Bush said, "maybe with him around I can have a cool cricket to play with and grow donkey ears and a tail and go inside of a whale and be a real boy too!"
