"Here's my spin on it. Republicans on Capitol Hill are getting nervous, because they remember that Rove's promises during the last election weren't worth the forged Niger letters they were written on. And they want some kind of promises that, if they stay loyal to the party, they'll be allowed to run the full-fledged racist attacks they believe will win them the next election. So BushCo, trying to stave off increasing irrelevance, has left Rove at home to dream about his permanent majorities, while someone else coaxes Congressional Republicans to stay on board.
It's not Democratic demands that Rove be subpoenaed that got Rove uninvited. It's Bush's own desperation to keep a bunch of people who want to demonize brown people in his back pocket that got Rove uninvited."
