Karl's crisis playbook

When in trouble, deploy message to nationally known Republican public relations firm masquerading as Fox News:
"President Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, signaled today that Mr. Bush might accept a slight delay in implementing the switch from P & O Ports to Dubai Ports World. When asked in an interview on Fox News Radio whether the president would be open to a brief delay, Mr. Rove said, 'Yes, look, there are some hurdles, regulatory hurdles, that this still needs to go through on the British side as well that are going to be concluded next week.' Mr. Rove added that it was important that members of Congress 'have the time to get fully briefed on this.'"
Cheney has a fireside with Brit, uses radio today. Fox News, at Karl's beck and call to assist whenever there's a crisis, that's quite apparent.
