Politics for David
I returned from the island to find that Karl Rove is being put to pasture, or set to stud. I have only seen a small sampling of main stream commentary on the subject but it is clear enough all ready that the guy has gotten a free pass for far to long. The media is composed of people who are just ignorant enough to remain solidly in the gushy embrace of the status quo for the amount of time required to place them in their booster chairs and shove them up to the table. The group who will willingly promote the latest Avril Lavigne album will tell you that Karl Rove is a genius. Not merely someone who was willing to go lower and play stupider. Republicans win because being stupid is easier. That is the long and short of it. The fact that no one can come out and say this is indicative of the problem. Karl Rove didn't win because he was a genius, he won by being procisely the opposite: stupid. Can you think of an intelligent policy he planned? Even one that failed. He is a moron and the fact that he is puts him in tune with morons around the country who vote in great numbers. They swarm together like sea roaches on rocks in the water; because they don't know anywhere else to go. A genius would lead. A genius would realize that being crass to maintain power doesn't benefit hummanity in the long, or the short run. A genius would step outside of themselves and ask what was right. Karl Rove did none of those things, and never will. I think the Braves will battle to the end in the standings. Go Chipper.
