Karl Rove: Can the Turd Blossom Get His Frog-March, Please?















...man, that's one spooky picture, ain't it?...I don't know if its some primal, atavistic urge that I'm tapping into or not but I'm praying, with fingers and toes crossed, that Karl Rove gets frog-marched from the court room on C-Span, the cuffs slapped on his wrists just before he's man-handled, kicking and wincing out of the court room on C-Span...a fitting beginning to a punishment long overdue...say what you will about my tendency to lean left; think of my fellow human being but Karl Rove was never one of the "good ones gone wrong" he's been a radioactive turd of darkness floating in the back channels of beltway policy for years now, which seemed to be justified when his boy, Bush the Younger squeaked into office in 2000 on a technicality that Americans never saw coming...seems like he'd been honing that talent for a while...

"In the fall of 1970, Rove used a false identity to enter the campaign office of Democrat Alan J. Dixon, who was running for Illinois State Treasurer, and stole 1000 sheets of paper with campaign letterhead. Rove then printed fake campaign rally fliers promising "free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing", and distributed them at rock concerts and homeless shelters, with the effect of disrupting Dixon's rally (Dixon eventually won the election). Rove's role would not become publicly known until August 1973."














...just lookit...look at those two staring, ever so tenderly at each other...heckuva job, Turd Blossom...doesn't it just make you want to bust out crying...well, don't it?...it seems this guy's had a penchant for seeing around corners while working in the muck-filled runnels of Presidential campaigning...and lately, since it seems that members of Bush' administration walk around like those diplomatic immunity-crazy Afrikaners in the Lethal Weapon movie with some invisible force-field of media retardant Teflon while pulling the "Executive Privilege" card...they all but had Clinton drawn and quartered for getting a BJ...a small but politically influential group of people (of which Rove is a member) have pulled scams that make Iran Contra-era Reagan Admin Loyalists look like a bunch of Keystone Cops...hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of civilian Iraqi deaths, trillions of dollars spent on a war that the general public (and all but a few members of the House and Senate were frightened into making after 911 when Bush made that "smoking gun will be a mushroom cloud" remark......blessed be Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D) who was the sole "nay" when KR and his crew were "slam dunking" thier way to that fiasco of foreign policy that was originally going to be named "Operation Iraqi Liberation" until somebody dropped dime and pointed out what the acronym would spell out) ..."We must not rush to judgment. Far too many innocent people have already died. Our country is in mourning. If we rush to launch a counterattack, we run too great a risk that women, children, and other noncombatants will be caught in the crossfire." here's a link to the verbiage of Congresswoman Lee's sole dissenting voice...her words proved prophetic (hindsight 20/20 and all that, I guess)...from what I've read on research on him, Rove's fingerprints are all over the place....not only does he know where all the bodies are buried...he knows what brand of lime was placed over the corpses...I think of all of this and other less known and it makes my skin start leaking when I wonder what he's up to now...what kind of political horror-show DON'T we know about...nobody can beat the clock...time always prevails...


..."A word to the wise is infuriating", if I might quote Hunter S Thompson...That Rove has actually deigned to leave at all while the level of hubris for this Administration reaches critical mass (a feat in and of itself) is telling, I don't know where all those rubes who fell for the skullduggery, truth obfuscating and misdirection that made minced meat out of John Kerry's message in 2004 but I do recall throwing up in my mouth when I heard of those Swiff Boat dudes...remember how the GOP trivialized the Purple heart by wearing those purple band aids?...Remember that purple ink on their fingers...that the media fails to report any of this in detail but can offer pages and pages of minutia about on Nicole Richie's dietary in intake is telling...I'm not saying that the latter is Rove's fault but he's definitely had a hand in making being uninformed and disenchanted with hard news on the political front what it is today...



























...my stomach turned and I wanted to projectile vomit on multiple occasions while I watched this series about him on FrontLine: Karl Rove -- The Architect (the landing page itself is a veritable treasure trove of Rovian factoids that, when seen grouped together, really do bring this guy's life of political malfeasance into sharper relief...the stove-pipe hat and handlebar mustache were pencilled-on way back before he even worked for Bush the Elder (who fired his ass outright for trying to pull off the very shenanigans that would get Bush II into the Oval Office...twice...


...ever hear about the push polling he launched against Anne Richards in Texas where the automated voice-over asks in the thrust of it's campaign patter if the caller would still vote for Richards if they knew that her campaign staff was over-run by lesbians?...she lost...later, he pulled out the shower shank on John McCain with similar tactics in South Carolina...""would you vote for John McCain if you knew he had adopted a black child which he parented with a black woman?"...it worked like gangbusters in ultra-red South Cacka-lackey, where racism and politics still run as strident and free as the bulls of San Fermin on the streets of Pamplona...being a southerner, and seeing living, breathing "Dixiecrats" all around me coming up, it's hard not to see the irony in that last little act of treachery being committed in the home state of that hypocritical bigot Strom Thurman who had an extraordinarily lengthy political career built on a foundation of a race-baiting political platform...later, a little after his death it was revealed that he had fathered a child with a teenaged maid way back in the day...let's get real, there's been scumbags like Thurman and Rove involved in politics throughout the course of human history...

...their bloodsucking ilk have been in our midst from the days that Hammurabi sat down to write his code of law, written ironically in Mesopotamia back in 1760 BC...the latter, would also drip with irony, if it weren't so sad ...still, I can't think of one person who's oily touch seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at once...is that him making sure Jack Ruby puts a pill in the right patsy?...























...not to put too fine a point on what I'm saying here but Karl Rove is one of those motherfuckers that I'd lay out long scratch to see tarred-and-feathered (by the same means that he'd done so with his political enemies past, some, like Valerie Plame's husband Joseph Wilson for simply telling the truth when all the Rove wanted was to sell us the big lie by any means necessary...I want to see his ass thrown under the jail and thrown under a jail and every nanosecond of a his stay chronicled on DVD, like an episode of Oz for posterity's sake; kept in that time capsule of our national brain trust...I'm dreaming out loud again, ain't I?...we already know that such is never has been and never will be tjhe case with the thugs running the current administration...they just screw things up, steal as much as possible (by way of kickbacks from corporate cronies who have all let themselves go)...it goes on and on...I just hope the Democrats have the political minerals to to stay focused on his slippery, eel-like ass...if they don't, they'll be complicit in letting one of the biggest criminals slip right through their fingers...


...politicos with "daddy issues unite: he was kicked off of Bush the elder's team, only to be hired by Bush the younger to do those things that got him fired by his father..."Rove was fired from the 1992 Bush presidential campaign after he planted a negative story with columnist Robert Novak about dissatisfaction with campaign fundraising chief Robert Mosbacher Jr. (Esquire Magazine, January 2003). Novak provided some evidence of motive in his column describing the firing of Mosbacher by former Senator Phil Gramm: "Also attending the session was political consultant Karl Rove, who had been shoved aside by Mosbacher." Novak and Rove deny that Rove was the leaker"...


..."When the politicians complain that TV turns the proceedings into a circus, it should be made clear that the circus was already there, and that TV has merely demonstrated that not all the performers are well trained."

--Edward R. Murrow --

...a few weeks ago thoughts similar to these surfaced in my mind vis-a-vis the recently released I. Scooter Libby...cheating has become such a substantive part of the GOP modus operandi, that it has begun to leak over into all other aspects of the political process so many ways that it's hard to recollect a time when things weren't so unabashedly covert and cut throat......the ubiquitous use of the underhanded tactics mentioned above and a grip of others that I haven't mentioned, (so check the links that I drop, son) ...see for yourself...take-no-prisoners-partisanship has became the coin of the relm while Rove was slithering around the halls of the White House...his tactics have made him politically radioactive (even for this administration) and he's being thrown under the bus...probably to pre-emptively run interference for something much more ominous but lets not get ahead of ourselves...one crook at a time, roight?...I've said it on here more than once and I'll re-iterate: what is past is prologue and based on what I've learned over the past six and a half years is that no matter what goes down, people like this guy will more than likely slide off and slip back into the dark swamp they rose from...only this time they'll have a lucrative lobbying gig, maybe even write a book or two...I know Rove's due at least one tell-all, as he begins working on re-writing the scandal and blood soaked history that he, himself helped bring to fruition...






















...I don't think he'll be able to totally pull off that last caper, I mentioned...too many eyeballs...too many people wired in...maybe if this were William Randolph Hearst's day, he'd be able to...more and more people are getting the zap on their domes and looking beyond the info-holes run by that handful of media giants...that "the-bigger-the-lie-the-more-people-will-believe-it" angle has gone the way of the Schickelgrüber...slowly but surely the cadre of loyal anti-constitution crooks, corporate shills, arm-chair generals and draft-dodging chicken hawks is thinning in their numbers...the re-tooling that this lot has done on all the moving parts under the hood of our nation's Democracy will take decades to uncover...I shudder at the thought...laters...
