The Whithering of The Turd Blossom

Karl Rove in happier times...

Karl Rove's 'meltdown' over Christine O'Donnell on Hannity was something to behold - an unprecedented divergence of opinion on the Republican propaganda channel and an almost unheard of example of Karl Rove spazzing out.

As a guy who's worked so hard to get Republicans elected over the years by hook or, more usually, by crook, it obviously pissed Karl off no end to see wingnuts back a no-chance candidate like O'Donnell and blow the GOP's carefully strategized plans to claw back a majority. I can understand his frustration. And I'm loving it!

But Turd Blossom owes me a new computer monitor... Maybe it's my fault for watching Hannity while drinking anything other than a heavy sedative, but this bit of his rant literally made me shoot coffee out of my nose:

"It does conservatives little good to support candidates who at the end of the day while they may be conservative in their public statements do not event [sic] the characteristics of rectitude, truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters are looking for."

Yes. Rove is griping about O'Donnell's lack of "rectitude, truthfulness and sincerity and character"! This from a guy whose whole career was built on a talent for utilizing deceit, lies and slime as tactical weapons. This from a guy who got his big break spreading lesbian smack about Ann Richards to get Bush elected governor. This from a guy who famously put John McCain out of the running in 2004 by inventing that 'illegitimate black babies' rumor... Wow. If O'Donnell's "rectitude, truthfulness and sincerity and character" are suspect enough to exasperate Rove himself, it makes you wonder how fatally flawed she really must be. Even he, a guy who's built his success on offering voters turds on plates and convincing them they're steaks, can't turn Delaware around with O'Donnell as candidate???

Given that the normally emotionless Rove was frustrated enough to go into meltdown mode, it would be safe to bet that the GOP campaign to retake the House must be in some serious jeopardy. Us 'progressives' haven't had much cause to celebrate in a while, but I'm taking this one!
