As we all know by now, Karl Rove has claimed that Hillary Clinton may be suffering from brain damage.

Well, he doesn't really think that. But if we follow Rove's modus operandi, we know that one of his key campaign tactics is to always accuse an opponent of his own candidate's Achilles Heel.

And who is Rove's preferred candidate for 2016? Is there any question?

Karl Rove on Jeb Bush:

"He is a very deliberate, thoughtful guy. He's the biggest thinker on our side."
"Biggest thinker?"

See Karl trying to head-off the charge that Jeb Bush has brain damage? Because how could the GOP's "biggest thinker" have brain damage? (Oh, sure, it's possible. Being the "biggest thinker" in the Republican Party is akin to being the "tallest midget in the circus.")

But if Bush is, indeed, brain-damaged, what does that say for GOP chances in 2016?

Thus, the charge that the Democratic front-runner "may have brain damage."

Classic Rove. A tacit admission that Jeb Bush is not qualified to be president.

So in the interest of full disclosure, I hereby call on Jeb Bush to open the vault and reveal his full medical history.

After all, Karl Rove says you're not all there!

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.
