    completely going in another direction?

    Oh right, he's so fiendish and all-powerfully brilkliant that he TRCIKED us and was the mastermind behind the appalling and likely destructive choice of Palin.

    Can we get over our deification of Karl Rove laready?

    We're retiring Steve LaTourette (R-Family Values for You But Not for Me) and sending Judge Bill O'Neill to Congress from Ohio-14: http://www.oneill08.com/

      decision and I don't really think you know what direction he was going in - mostly because the guy is a spinner.  Karl Rove - just like every other political flack in this country - is not going to tell you anything other than what he thinks you want to hear.  That's point one.

      Point two about Rove being "all-powerfully brilliant" is not at all what I was saying.  I said that he has a signature style in his political dealings which is to take decisions through a  purely political lens and that those decisions rarely take into consideration the actual business of government.  He is a win at all costs kind of guy.  He doesn't give a damn what gets destroyed in the path to his victory as long as he gets the win in his column.

      Personally, I think that makes him quite stupid in my book.  Brilliant people tend not to do things like get caught screwing around with the Department of Justice and outting CIA agents and causing all kinds of serious trouble for their bosses.

    •  Rove is exactly McCain's target... (0+ / 0-)

      Rove brought him down, so he's bringing down Rove's machine.

      We the People ordained our Government to promote our General Welfare;
      If We the People want Health Care for All, Government should provide it.

      effective. and limbaugh and hannity's immediate and  unconditional acceptance of palin, calling it brilliant, suggests this was not a mccain pick.

      limbaugh even used the occasion to make the final flip flop to endorse mccain on his friday show within an hour of the leaking it  was palin.
