Karl Rove and Captain Ahab-Conyers O'Reilly offers Rove place to hide from subpoena copyright © 2009 Betsy L. Angert. "The Architect," has apparently turned author. Americans learned of Karl Rove's newest career on January 28, 2009. During an interview with Fox News Broadcaster, Bill O'Reilly, the long-time Advisor to former President, George W. Bush, presented his novel manuscript to an expectant audience. Most tuned in to hear whether he would honor a Congressional subpoena. Few expected a reinterpretation of the epic fable, Moby Dick. Yet, there it was, a drama delivered. In this newer version, Congressman John Conyers is cast in the role of the antagonist. The Chair of the Judiciary Committee plays the part of Captain Ahab. Mister Rove sees himself as the lovable whale. Moby-Karl seeks only to defend himself against obsessive attacks from the maniacal Ahab-Conyers. Whilst the massive mammal quietly glides through calm seas, a fanatical Captain Ahab-Conyers follows. Captain Ahab's anger and aggressive temperament stirs the waters. The Chair of the Judiciary Committee creates waves. Moby-Karl merely moves along. He bothers no one, and wishes to go about his business, nothing more. Fascinated, Americans listen to Karl Rove spin his yarn. The writer tells a tale of himself and his nemesis. The two, Mister Rove explains, have been embroiled in a battle for years. Sailor Ahab-Conyers, envisions Moby-Karl as a giant marine mammal, fierce, and bent on destruction. He notes Moby-Karl had successfully designed another of his divisive campaigns. Captain Ahab-Conyers is certain, no one has been able to capture, let alone kill, the massive beast. However, Skipper-Conyers hopes to change that truth. He will slaughter the slippery creature. He will do so legally, with a summons. The sea Commander Ahab-Conyers, wishes to commence with a Congressional investigation. It seems clear to him, Moby-Karl will use his political influence...
