I remember as a child watching a cartoon in which Wile E Coyote walked up to Bugs Bunny and presented him with a business card that read "Hi, my name is Wile E Coyote, Super Genius". He then advised Bugs to surrender immediately since he had no chance of survival against an intellectually superior opponent. As could be expected, Bugs wasn't very impressed and proceeded to repeatedly humiliate and expose to great bodily harm said 'Super Genius'. At the end of the cartoon when it had been made painfully, and I mean that both figuratively and literally, obvious that he was not the intellectual giant he made himself out to be. He held up a sign that read "Hi, my name is MUD". Bugs bunny then stated "and remember folks, mud spelled backwards is DUM[B].
Now to one Mr. Karl Rove, he was anointed genius by the right wing pundits that masquerade themselves as the mainstream media shortly after the stupidest man on earth became President. I was watching a political show on one of the mainstream networks the other day and the Conservative pundits looked at the so-called left wing pundit and said that even with all of his problems, wouldn't the Democrats like to have a genius like Karl Rove on their side, to which this clown replied "yes".
Clearly their idea of what defines a genius is drastically different than mine. This idiot has executed a master plan which has handed Congress over to the Democrats, created the worst foreign policy blunder in the history of this country, and alienated both himself and his feckless boss from the citizens of the world, the American People, and members of Congress in their own party. Only an unlikely miracle will prevent the Democrats from picking up more seats in Congress and the presidency in 2008. The latest trends show that the American people are trending away from the Republicans in nearly every category. So please tell me what the Democrats would want this Schmuck for? If you evaluate his strategy over the entire 8 years of the Bush Presidency it is quite obvious that his plans were shortsighted and naive. He thought he could create a one party State, as most fascists would certainly desire, then make political moves with reckless abandon. That lasted exactly four years and now the Democratic Congress is quickly closing in on the "reckless abandon" part of his strategy with hearings and subpoenas. I suspect that by January of 2009 when the new President is sworn in, Mr. Rove will be holding up a sign not so unlike that of Wile E Coyote's final statement.
My advice to the Democrats is, with geniuses like Karl Rove, who needs dummies.
