"Well, it's unfair, I get that," Rove said of the process of removing a candidate after the party primary. "But [what Akin said] was also incredibly wrong and there's no recovering from it. It would have been one thing if he made some minor misstatement. But this is pseudoscience and morally incomprehensible."

Shenanigans. I calls 'em!

Karl Christian Rove (whom the CSM is monitoring scientifically here) here does not give a fig about the lack of science or morality in Akin's ramblings.

Karl Rove is a political animal, first and foremost.

He only cares about winning.

He's an evil twisted mockery of a man but he can read a poll by daylight.

/For a prime example of what is "Morally Incomprehensible" see the BushCo regime trying to make torture an official instrument of statecraft.
//See also: "Lying a country to war".
///Judges would have alsdo accepyted: "Being a war profiteer."

If your party conducts a war on women, blocks civil rights, tries to steal elections and nominates someone like Mitt Romney who in turn picks Paul Ryan as a running mate let the election go because man, it's gone.

Americans have "been told a bunch of terrible things about [Romney], that he doesn't care about people like you, that he ships jobs to China, that he's a wealthy plutocrat married to a known equestrian," Mr. Barbour said at a briefing on Monday.

Well, I can put up with most of that, but " married to a known equestrian" ? That's a deal breaker.

Seems fairly accurate

The other tea party, the other two-thirds, doesn't want to be an "adjunct" to the GOP. Instead, it aims to become a movement like the pro-life or Second Amendment or civil rights movement that wants "to influence people in both parties and hold their feet to the fire on issues of deficit, debt, freedom, limited government, and Obamacare."

Bullshiat. They don't care about influencing the Democrats, besides "making them do everything we say no matter what."

It would have been one thing if he made some minor misstatement. But this is pseudoscience and morally incomprehensible."

This is what I don't understand. I get Republicans can be aghast on what he said because how wrong it is scientifically but MORALLY this is the same position as the GOP platform and most Republicans. They might be able to say how he got to his position is wrong however his position he had is a mainstream Republican position. So if it is morally wrong for him. It's morally wrong for everyone to have that position. It shouldn't matter how you got to that position if it was through one belief or the other the other the position is identical.

Bullshiat it's unfair. You elected him in the primary. He's your candidate. If you can find a place where he lied about all his stances on issues like abortion, and can beyond a shadow of a doubt prove he ran under a very false flag, then I'll give you some sympathy and we'll work something out on the rules going forward. But he didn't, so there's no backsies when you vote for crazy and it turns out to be stupid and crazy.

Bootstraps, GOP. You made your bed, you lie in it. If it's uncomfortable, maybe you should stop building it that way.

This was not the Derp-filled drivel I was expecting. Like it or not, Rove is kind of a genius when it comes to campaigning, so it is a little interesting to see what's in his head. Know your enemy?

I live in Oregon, and I have definitely seen first hand the amount of Koch money coming in to unseat long-time democratic incumbents. I had never thought it could be a battle-ground state presidentially, but given that Rove is the gold-standard of Republican strategists, it lets me know I should probably keep listening to him to see if I need to cancel my cable for 2016...

So in order to dispel that notion, we forced coal miners to stand behind Mitt and threatened them with firing if they didn't do it, and just didn't pay them for work that day if the did.

Seriously. People have been told Romney is Mr. god-dam Burns because it's pretty much true.

1. Surprisingly candid about Akin. Almost like he's radioactive to anyone who cares at all about national politics.
2. Dissembling about the Tea Party. "We're not being led by our noses, we're leading them by their noses while being led by the nose of their leadership." Praising with faint damnation or asserting his party's dominance over the monster they created?
3. Oregon, a libertarian bastion, which hasn't gone red since Reagan, and has some of the lowest reported church attendance in the country, is suddenly going to flip to the "small"-government religious fanatics in the GOP? All 7 electoral votes? Good luck with that.
4. ERMAGHERD Obama is creating a narrative about Romney! Unprecedented in modern politics.
5. It's unbecoming for a sitting president to campaign while the other guy is campaigning. Traditionally, a candidate releases 10 years of tax returns abstains from campaigning while his opponent is.

As usual, Rove knows what he's talking about. Albeit, the reasons he's stating in public as usual aren't necessarily the actual reasons, but that dude knows campaigning.

Karl Rove: strongly denounced Akin, differentiated the small government wing of the Tea Party from the political opportunists like DeMint, and indirectly admitted that the "you didn't build that" quote has been taken out of context.

Exactly. When Rove says something is "morally incomprehensible", that means he knows it's a issue that can damage the Republican party as a whole. No one believes that Rove gives two shiats about morality. All he cares about is winning the game. And Akin is making him lose.

Yeah, that's what I got out of it too. Rove is an expert at manipulating people's opinions, but you have to have a solid understanding of the political scene before you can do that.

When have republicans ever cared what scientists had to say? They are aghast because deep in their guts they sense that this may cost them the election.

Rove brilliantly pandered to the religious right to get his guy elected, but in doing so they (repubs) created a monster that may very well cost them the senate and the presidency.

There comes a time in a person's life when the sum of evil he has committed renders him less than human. Rove shot past that point somewhere in 2003. Listening to Rove talk about political discourse is barely above hearing Mengele give a lecture on obstetrics, IMHO.

Fark him, and every damn thing he has to say.

To be fair, Mitt didn't do this.

Mitt just kisses the ass of the farkstain who did.

If only there was some sort of organization of workers that could prevent them from being forced to stand in as set dressing for a campaign photo op without the threat of being fired....

Exactly. Obviously I don't know Rove personally so I could be totally off-base, but I would wager he likely doesn't even give two-shiats about advancing the Republican platform. But it is what he is very skilled at, thus it is what keeps him rich and relevant. Mind you I would also wager this for a great many "players."

Most of the inner circle guys - Rove, Gingrich, and Romney (to a somewhat lesser extent) are culture warriors only as a means to an end. The real nutjobs like Santorum, Akin and Gohmert revulse them because they are bad for business - like any drug lord will tell you, staff usage of the public product isn't good policy.

One thing kids like is to be tricked.
For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse.
"Oh, no," I said, "Disneyland burned down."
He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke.
I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Also, he has severe diarrhea.

deep thoughts:

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why so is mankind.

The memories of my family outings are still a source of strength to me. I remember we'd all pile into the car - I forget what kind it was - and drive and drive. I'm not sure where we'd go, but I think there were some trees there. The smell of something was strong in the air as we played whatever sport we played. I remember a bigger, older guy we called "Dad." We'd eat some stuff, or not, and then I think we went home. I guess some things never leave you.

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."
