Um, never mind

It's the nature of politics that people who are fighting one another for a presidential nomination try to tear down their opponents, until one of those opponents wins the nomination. Then they deify the same person they had spent months vilifying. Hillary Clinton called Barack Obama everything but a sack of poop during their primary battles. Now, she's an Obama cheerleader. Mitt Romney once said that Obama would mop the floor with John McCain if the Republicans made the mistake of picking the Arizona senator as their candidate. Now, in Romney's eyes, McCain is the second coming of Brigham Young. In that vein, here's an amusing video of Karl Rove that I caught on the Daily Show last night. He was talking about the possibility, a few weeks ago, that Obama might pick Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine as a running mate. Do you think he was blindsided by the Palin pick?

Wow! No one wants to touch this one. Could be becasue Karl Rove is a joke and everyone knows it. Why is Jon Stewart the only member of the media (and he isn't even media) willing to call him and others out on their past statements? C'mon FOX News, be "fair" and "balanced". Make him justify those previous words. He's your special political analyst.

Political operatives, both Democrat and Republican, count on the voters to have short, or no, memories. They also count on the populace to be uninformed, stupid and easily led like a bunch of sheep. And, way too often, they are rewarded for those expectations.

I am surprised the comments on this one are still in the single digits...

I think Greg was right when he said no one wants to touch this. I mean, what can you say. Rove has made himself look like a douche.
