Bloated, corrupt, Hell-bound asshole Karl Rove flip-flops on McCain's "illegitimate black child"
Karl Rove recalls the story of Senator McCain's adopted daughter

There's a lot about GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that people don't know, says former Bush strategist and current Fox commentator Karl Rove. One of the many lesser known stories of McCain's remarkable life, according to Rove, is the story of how McCain came to adopt his teenage daughter Bridget.

"I think most of your viewers would be shocked to hear the story of Cindy McCain in Bangladesh, visiting an orphanage, and she has a small dying child thrust into her hands. And the--people in the orphanage say 'We can't care for her. She's dying. We don't know what to do.'

And Cindy McCain's impulse was to hold that--hug that child to her chest, get on an airplane and bring her home."

This version of the story is in sharp contrast to one presented to South Carolina's voters by a push-polling campaign during the 2000 presidential primaries; they were asked by their callers if they would be more or less likely to vote for Senator McCain if they knew he'd "fathered an illegitimate black child."

3. I think Rove will tell McCain he "took one for the team" in 2000...
...and by accepting Rove's involvement in 2008, McCain pretty much wipes away any self-respect he might have had up until now.

Ambition is a funny thing. It makes some bend over and grab their ankles without a trace of remorse.
