Karl Rove Surrenders to General Malkin

If anyone thinks that the tea party and it's promoter's in the wingnut pundit world don't now rule the GOP roost, even Karl Rove has been brought to heel after speaking some truth, rare for him, on the "nutty" new gooper Senate Candidate Christine O'Donnell, whose various causes include a Jihad against masturbation, and calling for Bill Clinton to be investigated for murdering Vince Foster.

Ms. O'Donnell, you see is the darling mini me for Sarah Palin, the perky prophet to lead the wingnut tribe out of the wilderness of mainstream republicanism, into the promised land of real America. That would be the mainstream GOP of Karl Rove and George Bush and Dick Cheney, and the chamber of horrors they inflicted on the nation for 8 long years, including bankrupting the country, torture, invasions of countries for no good reason, But most importantly, and likely primary to their real cause, the old vanguard losing all power and letting a darkie Muslim move into the White House.

But there is no indication they now oppose the worst of the policies of George Bush, but more like he didn't go far enough with right wing authoritarianism, and had his precious bodily fluids drained by crypto socialist advisers, like maybe Rove, who knows? And didn't deal with the scourge of masturbation on his watch. And assorted other creepy shit under the banner of "real America" and "taking back OUR country"

But never mind, Mr. Rove has been shown the light by the real leaders of the GOP, Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, and Palin.

Since he made that comment, commentators from Michelle Malkin to Sarah Palin to Rush Limbaugh have called Rove everything from incompetent to traitorous. The end result? Rove has come to embody the "establishment" in discussions about O'Donnell. And as anyone knows, this year, the "establishment" label on a Republican resume is about as popular as a meat dress at a PETA meeting.

So perhaps it's no surprise that Rove buckled under the pressure of his right-wing critics, rushing onto Fox this morning to change the narrative. How can you call me establishment? he asked. I supported Sharron Angle for goodness' sake! And as to that whole "the GOP Senate majority is doomed" thing, Rove is now claiming that not only does he think O'Donnell can win, he actually orchestrated sending NRSC money to her campaign.

It seems for the GOP these days, no one there gets out alive. Either you kiss the Dragon ring, or off with your head. With the taking down of high once guru of republican politics, humbled into formation by the triad of RINO hunters, the deal is closed, signed sealed and delivered to the grave of Richard Nixon, who started all this "southern strategy" shit.

  1. Maybe it's good news the Rove got smacked. Republicans applauded the tea baggers, always believing that they could control things in the end. It's ironic that it is corporate funds that enabled the tea baggers to become a force -- the very same funds that the old guard relies on.

    The bad news is that there is little talk about how the tea baggers have brought to the process the most unqualified people -- an ugly mix of Christianists, lyers, racists, etc.
