Karl Rove: Still Armed & Dangerous

Karl Rove's enduring legacy and great shame will be his role as the master of a divisive and fear mongering brand of politics that came to epitomize the Bush administration. Yet he is treated as some sort of a revered senior statesman and not a Lee Atwater knockoff by a culpable news media that breathlessly reports his every word, including claptrap like this:
"ABC News' Christianne Klein reports that at a breakfast with Republican insiders at the Capitol Hill Club this morning, former White House senior aide Karl Rove referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, as "coolly arrogant."

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said, "He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."
