Karl Rove Busted!
Bush’s Brain is Dead!
After engineering the election of George Bush, a Texas Republican dunderhead with little knowledge about the world, to the presidency of the United States over the far more capable Al Gore, political strategist Karl Rove was acclaimed a political genius and dubbed “Bush’s Brain.” Although Bush’s pet name for his puppetmesiter is “Turd blossom.”
And when he did it again, after Bush had presided over the 9/11 attack – the worse national security failure in American history, and then attacked the wrong country – Rove took on the aura of a political oracle whose political advice was infallible, and Republicans regarded his pronouncements with the reverence with which the Catholic faithful receive the encyclicals of the Pope. That’s why they are all shell shocked after President Obama’s crushing defeat of Mitt The Twit.
Turd Blossom’s dramatic fall from the pedestal on which he had pompously perched began when he was commenting on the election returns on FOX News – that flagship of that incubator of Republican fantasies David Frum, a former Bush speech writer and genuine intellectual, calls “The Republican entertainment complex.” After FOX’s own numbers men called Ohio for President Obama, which gave him the election, Rove had a conniption and went into fumbling fit of denial.
Reflecting the tension between those who consider themselves “journalist” and the Republican propagandists who provide the commentary, the anchor woman, Megyn Kelly, got up and walked back the room where the election results were being tallied and asked them to respond to Rove’s concerns. They were steadfast in their conclusions.
This prompted her to ask Rove live on television if his calculations were real or “just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better.” It was the most embarrassing moment I have ever witnessed of a major commentator on television in real time. One can see why Rove went into shock and denial because he had just blown 300 million dollars on the election through his two super PACS American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS.
Not only did Romney lose with two million fewer votes than John McCain garnered, but all but one of the Senate candidates supported by Rove also lost! The Democrats retained the White House, added to their majority in the Senate and increased their numbers in the House. This colossal Republican defeat has reduced Rove to a figure of ridicule and contempt in and out of the Grand Obstructionist Party.
The venerable rightwing war horse Richard Viguerie predicted that Turd blossom “would never be hired to run or consult on a national campaign again.” And the racist Blow hard Republican Buffon Donald Trump tweeted “congrats to Karl rove on blowing 400 million this cycle. Every race Crossroads GPS ran ads in the Republicans lost. What a waste of money.”
The Donald Was Really Pissed!
Yet his insane Racist Antics Help Bring the GOP Down!
Joe Scarboro lamented that the reason the Republicans were so shocked by their defeat was because the Republican media commentariat “lied to us!” Indeed, the analysis of the various pre-election polls released today by Nate Silver – the numbers crunching wizard at the New York Times who called it all right – shows that the most inaccurate predictions came from two of the most prestigious albeit Republican leaning pollsters: Rasmussen and Gallup, who were off by 4 and 5 points respectively
The attacks cited above are but a sampling of the invective his fellow Republicans are heaping on the head of Turd. And other Republican prognosticators who had predicted a Romney victory – Newt Gingrich, Dirty Dick Morris, Michael Steele, et al – are publicly confessing the error of their ways.
However the most brutal public flagellations are coming from the television comedians. There are certainly too man to cover here, but the Saturday Night Live Skit deserves honorable mention, but Dave Letterman bit took first prize with me. Assuming the dramatis personae of a Koch brother speaking to Rove, he says “Hey Tubby, how much will it take to but this election” as he shells out money.
Dave cautions us not to be surprised if we hear that the Koch brothers jumped Rove and kicked his ass! The bloodletting in the Grand Obstructionist Party has just begun. I shall watch from my front row seat with the jaded blood lust of spectators in the Roman Coliseum where Gladiators fought to the death, and everybody will get a thumb’s down! I pray that Turd Blossom die the death of a pole cat and stink his way to hell!!!!!
