The setup: As you may already know, that bastard The Kenyan Usurper listened to the people of Alaskastan and has ordered the renaming of Mt. McKinley to the original Koyukon Athabascan name of Denali. This is something that Alaska has been asking for literally years. As one wag on Twitter last night put it:
Of course all of wingnuttia is howling about it, because state rights, um,
McKinley was white? We don’t understand this one, but they ARE definitely howling.
So imagine my delight that ol’ Turdblossom, Karl Rove hisself is taking advantage of The Kenyan Usurper to promote his newest book:
–KARL ROVE emails Playbook: “The 25th president gets overlooked too much already. Would hope the president would find another appropriate way to honor McKinley. Luckily there’s a book coming out about McKinley in November.” (“The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters,” by Karl Rove.
(from the Tiger Beat on the Potomac email thingie)
Jeebus, first Cheney now Turdblossom. We should watch Segway stock today.
“Obama has no chance of carrying Indiana. I was having dinner with [Indiana Gov.] Mitch Daniels this spring, and I said, ‘Mitch, is there a white Democrat south of Indianapolis who’s supporting Obama who’s not a college professor in Bloomington?’ And he stopped for a minute over his green beans and says, ‘Not that I can think of.’”
–Turdblossom is counting on the white Dims to vote for Willard. Listen also for code words: “New South independents” and “Racial Moderates.” They are not even trying to hide it anymore.
Karl Rove, of course. Maybe he can get his Rap Stars back together?
KARL ROVE fills in for RUSH LIMBAUGH for the first time on Monday, live from New York City. A jovial Rove joked on Fox & Friends: “Anxiety! Anxious! Feeling nervous! Feeling anxious! Please! Feeling very nervous!”
…all of them billionaires?
Compensating for damage the Republican National Committee’s unsteadiness may cause Republican candidates this fall, several high-profile GOP operatives — including Karl Rove and two former RNC chairmen — recently founded American Crossroads as a “grassroots,” “shadow RNC.” Salon’s Justin Elliott now reports that the group raised 97 percent of its funding from just four billionaires:
Meh. If Catsup is a vegetable, if Tucker Carlson is a journalist, if Mooselini is a kingmaker, then I suppose anything could be true. Thanks Supreme Court!
Karl Rove, yes, Turdblossom himself, was chased from the stage at a book signing event in Beverly Hills by Code Pink:
Bet that hurts booksales.
We need to find the 1960s-era Buffy and celebrate her!
Karl Rove’s partisan bloodlust flowered early. At age 9 — and already a political nerd — he became a spirited supporter of Richard Nixon in the 1960 presidential smackdown against John F. Kennedy. So intense was his devotion that he landed a coveted Nixon bumper sticker and displayed it proudly on his bicycle basket — until a little girl in his neighborhood who favored JFK beat the stuffing out of him, bloodying his nose and ego.
Darby Rove is free at last, after 24 long and thankless years of being married to Turdblossom, the couple have divorced. Also, Dana Perino is the Rove family spokesperson now. This is too delish to pass up…
So who is the fat wanker gonna marry-up next? You know that these old sinners never divorce to lead a life of solitude and quiet contemplation. My guess: Ken Mehlman.
However, since taking office Mr. Obama pushed through a $787 billion stimulus, a $33 billion expansion of the child health program known as S-chip, a $410 billion omnibus appropriations spending bill, and an $80 billion car company bailout. He also pushed a $821 billion cap-and-trade bill through the House and is now urging Congress to pass a nearly $1 trillion health-care bill.

…Could it be Chimpy’s $700 Billion (with a B) Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 legislation, and perhaps the $288 Billion (with a B) TARP program? So stimulus and healthcare are “spending” — and what was bailing out Wall St. — none of which will probably ever be repaid and from which no one will benefit except for a clutch of vultures feeding on the corpse of the once-working american taxpayer.
Thanks for the finger, Karl. It’s always good to hear from serial liars to remind us of how we got here.
