That and a couple strategically placed electronic voting machines...

That's pretty lousy advice. It's obvious he just got lucky getting Bush elected (and he cheated the first time).

So, will you guys be announcing an endorsement in time for caucuses?

He doesn't address Edwards. Probably because he's not a front-runner...but it could be that Rove doesn't want to draw attention to the candidate the R's would least like to have as the nominee.

Am I wrong to hope that Rove has a massive stroke within the next month either killing or severely crippling his thought and speech patterns?

I don't care if he's not in the White House anymore, the guy is a menace, cheater, liar, and manipulator.

At this point, I don't see how a formal endorsement will mean anything to regular Slog readers. I mean, why even bother as long as it's a Democrat, right?

Fuck Karl Rove. Fuck that douchey son of a bitch. He was the 'architect' for Bush, or so they say? Look how well that turned out, fuck what that pompous fucking asshole thinks. God, I can't believe people still listen to what that washed out fucktard thinks!

The resaon the GOP will still win in November has to do with the electronic voting boxes that are designed by Diebold who is a major contributor to the GOP.

But I know the Stranger (which has gone mainstream) is in denial that voter fraud is even an issue. But feel free to vote, Diebold will choose who you really wanted to vote for.

Actually, surprisingly enough, I think that the guy is completely on target. Even with Huckabee, the Republicans could hammer the nominee in exactly this way and pick up the middle-of-the-road voter.

For me, it's just another sign that the Democrats as a whole are not seeing the forest for the trees. We need a candidate that isn't just the first (fill in the blank) candidate, but also one that most of middle America believes could run the country. None of the top three have that experience.

@8, we thought we had that candidate but we could not get him to run for office this time around. **DAMN YOU AL GORE!!**

Posted by Cato the Younger Younger | January 17, 2008 8:25 AM

@2 is right; it's getting more and more obvious that Rove is nowhere near the genius that he's been billed to be. How'd his "math" work out in 2006, when he claimed that the GOP would hold onto Congress...?

Bookmark that editorial and remember this fall to read it again for a good laugh.

Forgot to mention his hilarious line about the GOP appealing to blacks, Latinos and union voters. OMG, so fucking funny.

I hate Rove as much as anyone but I think people are getting a little to complacent in dealing with him. Rove's record comes down to this: his evil worked in 2000, 2002 and 2004. And we are not even looking at the races in Texas he won/maniputlated. Are we really thinking that his screw up in one election year (and not even a presidential election at that) makes him a total failure?

Is he a factor? I am not sure but until he start a trend of failure it is best to take the side of caution.

Great.. So reading between the lines, it sounds like the film editor loses out to the resident wingnut and we can expect HRC to get picked up for DUI anytime now.

Posted by Clint | January 17, 2008 8:56 AM

@4, I'd prefer spontaneous human combustion, but would settle for the options you listed.

Posted by Mr. X | January 17, 2008 9:33 AM

15 months ago Rove claimed he had some sort of super secret polling that indicated that the GOP would make gains in the House and Senate in 2006. Didn't happen, Turdblossom.

He's becoming America's answer to Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf (the former Iraqi Minister of Information). "There are no Democratic infidels in Washington. Never!"

Posted by DOUG. | January 17, 2008 9:34 AM

Hmm, smears and lies. Now that's a new strategy!

Posted by MadDogM13 | January 17, 2008 11:19 AM

I hope the Stranger didn't go with "no and no" this time.

Posted by tiptoe tommy | January 17, 2008 11:42 AM

So why hasn't Squeaky Fromm killed Karl Marx Rove yet?

Posted by Will in Seattle | January 17, 2008 12:00 PM

the double wrestling team of bill and hillary make a sausage grinder look and smell

each represent the worst not only in politics but in the most basic, decent human qualities.

both are liars, hustlers, cheats, and they're arrogant, conceited and coninving, besides, just for starters.

they are the absolute worst slim immaginable.

they will do anything to stay in
power, but rest assured, they are
low lifes and trailer trash, to the max.

the ONLY thing they care about is their
lowlife power hustle.

they are the absolute scum of the ear
