    to use either they have to get clearance first.

    That means that they aren't gone - just being kept out of sight and out of mind for the moment.

    I promise you they will both be back unless either one or both pass away in the interim period.  Then they'll still come back in the form of video clips accumulated over the years.

    FWIW, the Fox and GOP world is shrinking at the moment.  Why do you think they keep dragging out old Reagan era flunkies? Because they don't have a great stable of people in the current ranks to choose from.

      I suspect much of the culture at Fox News gets communicated verbally.

        As tempting as it is to believe that these two political personalities would be excommunicated forever, it is just not realistic.  Hell, who would have thought that Dick Morris would have resurfaced after his time with Clinton?  He was taken down by a sex scandal.  He was supposed to be "done" then, but he wasn't was he?  If he had been, we wouldn't even be having this discussion today.

        This crowd is a band of thieves.  Their bond is too strong to be broken - Rove and Morris will have a time out and then they will be back.  They will.  Sorry.  Not my rules.
