Oh WOW... 'Krazy Karl: He's Come Undone' - James Moore/HuffPo

Krazy Karl: He's Come Undone

Rove manufactures realities like mobile homes and then convinces otherwise intelligent people they are valuable property and great places to live. In his neighborhood, loving gay people wanting to get married threaten Ward and June Cleaver's ability to keep safe Wally and the Beav. This fearsome vision even drove moderates in Ohio in the direction of Bush in 2004, and many of them were black evangelicals. Karl Rove can sell the rickety products to anyone who is frightened a bargain might disappear at the close of business. Rove has been trying to reconstruct 1950s America since his father disappeared into the oil patch and came home one Christmas Eve to tell his family he was gay. Unfortunately, the parts wouldn't fit together for Karl. His mother committed suicide, the nation was torn apart by Vietnam, and putting on a blue blazer and tie to attend high school didn't give him access to June Cleaver's household. Rove had to create a reality that no longer existed.

His latest scam has been to portray a socialist America run by a secret black Muslim that taxes the wealth and destroys the economy of people like the Koch brothers. Rove convinced countless rich people and their corporations to write him big checks for his Super PAC Crossroads GPS. If only he were properly funded, he insisted, he could prevent the horrible American tragedy that waited like a specter behind a door. Three or four hundred million dollars later he lost and came undone on national television. The numbers cruncher had his reality crunched by numbers. A bonfire of inanities was burning his future.

Rove has not healed himself. He still believes the vote counts exist that no one else can see. He's back on TV accusing the president of suppressing the vote. How this happens to get Mr. Obama reelected is unclear but Rove undoubtedly sees secret armies of the night crossing the American landscape and sneaking through suburbia, stealing the car keys of middle class and upper income white voters so they can't drive their SUVs to the polls. Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch can be expected to sustain Rove's intellectual imbalance because he brings a decreasing audience of lemmings to their broadcasts but the Republican Party can provide no explanation for taking his guidance. Karl Rove has almost single-handedly destroyed the GOP. He has chased away almost every constituency other than white males with money and anger issues. There is only a platform left that creates division and patent meanness, which are Rove's greatest accomplishments.

His legacy will be that he was the mad scientist that developed a rhetorical germ that caused reasonable Americans to grab each other around the throat. Our social fabric of debate, discussion, compromise, and caring has been on the verge of tearing apart and setting us all off on a race among the ruins. Karl may not have shame about what has happened but we ought to at least be embarrassed by the complicity of what the world once thought of as a great nation.

Karl Rove is not a genius; he has become almost a kind of national village idiot. He is humored by some, ignored by others, but has been allowed too often back into the public square trying to tell strangers his odd stories. If he has friends, they need to take him aside and gently get Rove to therapy. Fortunately, our democracy can recover from his ministering and manipulation.

Karl's future is less certain.

6. More about Rove's ancestry....

Scroll down for the article....

the Bush-Rove-Schwarzegnegger Nazi Nexus

QUOTE:

Rove’s grandfather was Karl Heinz Roverer, the Gauleiter of Oldenburg. Roverer was Reich-Statthalter—Nazi State Party Chairman—for his region. He was also a partner and senior engineer in the Roverer Sud-Deutche Ingenieurburo A. G. engineering firm, which built the Birkenau death camp, at which tens of thousands of Jews, Gypsies, dissidents and other were slaughtered en masse.

2. he has a function: separating rich Pugs from their money

And at that task, he has been wildly successful, while being a total failure at politics.

7. his man crush on GWB

Rove's man-crush on the younger Bush was immediate, and you can imagine Bush strolling toward Rove in slow-motion soft focus as he describes the scene: "George W. Bush walked through the front door, exuding more charm and charisma than is allowed by law. He had on his Air National Guard flight jacket, jeans, and boots. I introduced myself and we chatted about nothing for a few minutes."

8. If Karl has had anything to do with plane crashes, etc,..... time to put some

shadows on him to protect people in case he totally cracks. Just sayin'. This guy's deepest point has been seared badly. He is unstable.

10. Maybe karl is looking for all those votes he knows were stolen.

What karl does not seem to know is that enough people voted to overide any election malarky he may have organised.
