So I guess Karl Rove's not an atheist

A few months ago, Chris Hitchens claimed in New York magazine that Karl Rove was a closeted atheist (story is here). I found this bit of information, in a word, "unsettling" -- I just couldn't believe the architect of the GOP's modern religious jihad was a (closeted) atheist.

Well, he's not. From Rove's resignation speech today:

At month’s end, I will join those whom you meet in your travels — the ordinary Americans who tell you they are praying for you. Like them, I will ask for God’s continued gifts of strength and wisdom for you and your work, your vital work for our country and the world and for the Almighty’s continued blessing of our great country.

So, Hitchens wrong, Rove still an asshole. Par for the course lately.
