“Karl Rove is Not a Conservative”

So writes Terry Jeffrey, under what may be the most straightforwardly obvious headline in the history of all headlines, anywhere, ever.

Really.  What’s there to add?  I mean, if I start a group called “The Shiitake Mushrooms for Jesus,” that doesn’t make me either a Shiitake muhsroom or a Christian — with the self-styled designation made all the more absurd when I’m witnessed in public spraying ground clear on Shiitake mushroom patches before using my lunch break to nail evangelicals to crosses made out of old white boards.

QED.

    I think Rove has finally flipped. The loss of Romney must’ve given him an aneurysm and killed the last common sense brain cells he had. (He didn’t have much to start with).

    I welcome this fight as it now allows us to apply an immediate litmus test:

    “Are you a Rovian or do you think Rove is a
    Conservative?”

    Answers in the affirmative should be met with immediate primarying of those holding those sentiments. Thank Karl.

    I’ve long suspected (since about 1996 when they still thought they were in the minority in the House and ACTED LIKE IT!) that the Republican party was not capable of separting itself sufficiently from the DC “mentality”. They talk a good conservative game but when it comes time to stand up; phhhhhhttt, they blow it. They almost seem to do it on purpose. Therefore they either don’t really believe what they say OR they’re conniving cocksuckers. Either way, it’s time to go.

    We can’t run a Republic with only 1 party. That’s an Oligarchy and we’ve seen how “well” it works.

    Time for some good ol’ competition and the sorting out of the losers and winners.

    Guys like Marco Rubio are a prime example. Talks right, acts left. And of course myriad other examples of the liars and trecherous in the Republican party wouldn’t be complete without a mention of John McCain and the Maine twins.

    Enough.

    Bring it Karl if YOU THINK YOU’RE HARD ENOUGH!

  2. Marco Rubio is on the cover of Time magazine: Marco Rubio: Republican Saviour.

    Spare me from the iconization of anymore political figures in my lifetime, O God.

    I’ve been noticing those too, but they’re just warnings. If there were fatal errors the site wouldn’t work.

    There may be code bugs resulting from updates either in the WordPress platform or plugins, relative to the site theme.

  4. I think Rove has finally flipped.

    He hasn’t flipped; his mask has slipped.

  5. Marco Rubio is on the cover of Time magazine: Marco Rubio: Republican Saviour.

    When Time Magazine likes a Republican, he’s either a squish, or they’re trying to make people think he is.

  6. they’re trying to make people think he is.

    The media knows, all right. They’ve observed the second and third order effects of their embrace of various personalities, and so can be expected to put those effects to use. Rubio has it in his power, however, or so I think, to short circuit any and all of those effects regarding himself, should he choose to do. It might take a the deployment of a little rude or frank language on his part, but the end would make such a mode of speech readily acceptable to me.

  7. Careful, Jeff – a nickname like ‘Mushroom Jesus’ could stick.

    Which would be in spore taste…

  8. I certainly hope he does, sdferr. I find the whole thing to be most blaphemous.

  9. So writes Terry Jeffrey, under what may be the most straightforwardly obvious headline in the history of all headlines, anywhere, ever.

    Jeffrey might also have mentioned that Rove is not victorious. Even when he first pushed that “compassionate conservatism” crap on us in 2000, it took weeks of ugly recounts to barely limp over the finish line. It hasn’t gotten any better since.

    He’ll harp all day about Sharon Angle, mostly because he’s desperate to keep you from looking at all the failures he’s thrown resources behind, and all the actual conservatives elected despite his best efforts.

    Any candidate proud to wear a CVP endorsement is a candidate we don’t need.

  10. Karl Rove is starting to remind me of Gríma Wormtongue.

  11. Then Mithrandir can’t show up soon enough, charles.

  12. Day by Day.

    Nouveaux modérés. Oui?
