We Can Hope
Karen of Dark Bilious Vapors
has an interesting quote
regarding the possibility of Karl seeking other employment.
Many have likened Karl to Niccolo Machiavelli
. I would hope that he follows that gentleman's path: expulsion from office and house arrest at the end of his life.
People overlook that Machiavelli wrote The Prince
while in exile in an attempt to rebuild his failed career. It didn't work.
