Speaking in a Manhattan ballroom just a few miles north of ground zero, Karl Rove said on Wednesday night that the Democratic party did not understand the consequences of the Sept. 11 attacks.
"Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers," Rove said. "Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."...
Yeah, Karl? You think so? Well, we wanted bin Laden dead or in custody. Your whiny little boss let bin Laden get away because he thought it was more important to get some other guy he said "tried to kill my dad." And bin Laden's still at large because your boss thinks Pervez Musharraf and the Saudi royal family need love and understanding. So go fuck yourself, Karl.
UPDATE: And lest we forget:
Except for a lapse of several months, Selective Service records show presidential adviser Karl Rove escaped the draft for nearly three years at the height of the Vietnam War using student deferments....
Far from being a conscientious objector, [Mark] Gustavson [a college friend and classmate] recalls, Rove's opposition to the war was political. He considered the conflict a "political skirmish that was not being properly administered."....
UPDATE: Julia would also like to have a word with you, Karl.
