I sign in to DKos.  I once again find my vision cruelly assaulted by a great big picture of Dubya's pet prairie dog --- and find myself once again asking:

Why is Karl Rove so Damned Important?

Do we need a big fat picture of a big fat guy?  No --- unless we need a poster child for the argument to criminally institutionalize teh stoopid.

Do we need to further glorify the political obscenity that is his somewhere-beneath-glorification-worthy, politically-obscene name?  No --- unless we're really desperate for something that we can scare small children with (If you don't eat all your vegetables, the Big Fat Scary Man will get you).

I know it would require a few more keystrokes on everyone's part --- but couldn't we just rename this fat fool --- give him a moniker more befitting his intellectual irrevelancy in the realm of meaningful facts and factual American patriotism?  I mean, c'mon, Kossackstanis --- this clown is less important to these United States of America than the fecal "gift" left in the middle of a Monsanto-tainted cornfield by a mangy, feral chipmunk....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Otherwise, I agree: some interviewer simply needs to say "why are you relevant, Karl?" He'd not be able to answer.

    Stay away from the "fat" stuff. Call him what Bush called him: "Turdblossom".

      Ignoring him is what victory looks like.  We've always had a lunatic fringe.  What's new is that they are now taken seriously.  The best way to pay attention to them is to not pay attention to them at all.  Failing that, caustic mocking.

    this clown is less important to these United States of America than the fecal "gift"
    He may indeed be fecal matter himself but it's obtuse to pretend he isn't important.  Just saying nya nya nya you don't matter doesn't make the man or his methods go away.  The idea is to beat him and the crooks he shills for.  

    When the truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.

    The amoral, win at all costs philosophy of Karl Rove is the central theme of the GOP right now. Disenfranchise, use memes but don't really discuss, keep the legislators in line at any cost, provide them with boilerplate legislation so they don't have to think, etc. And "corporations are people my friend."

    This is a system, not really a person. And yes, it's very, very important.
