Karl Rove, Scumbag Opportunist

Well, as we all know by now, Karl Rove has shown the world just how amoral and soulless a foul beast he truly is. For those who might have missed it:

"Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers," Mr. Rove, the senior political adviser to President Bush, said at a fund-raiser in Midtown for the Conservative Party of New York State.

Citing calls by progressive groups to respond carefully to the attacks, Mr. Rove said to the applause of several hundred audience members, "I don't know about you, but moderation and restraint is not what I felt when I watched the twin towers crumble to the ground, a side of the Pentagon destroyed, and almost 3,000 of our fellow citizens perish in flames and rubble."

Mr. Rove also said American armed forces overseas were in more jeopardy as a result of remarks last week by Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, who compared American mistreatment of detainees to the acts of "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime - Pol Pot or others."

"Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year?" Mr. Rove asked. "Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals."

Let's clear something up. Our soldiers are in harm's way because PRESIDENT BUSH PUT THEM THERE. There was NEVER any connection between 9/11 and Iraq. To slander one-half of America as a means of distracting the other half from Bush's failing presidency constitutes an act so vile, so base that it's worthy of Rasputin. And the fact that he made the statement while attending a conference in NYC only enhances the quality of the evil that he has mastered.

Oh, and the White House refused to ask Rove to apologize; ergo, Bush condones this hypocrisy. After all, they are physically incapable of showing any weakness. An apology would be tantamount to surrender!!!

And while we liberal New Yorkers watched as the second plane hit the Towers and raced around after their collapse, trying to help in whatever ways we could, what did "brave and fearless" President Bush do? He shat his fucking pants, that's what.
