Holy hairpiece! Someone let Karl Rove out

The Wall Street Journal gave Karl Rove a bunch of pricey op-ed real estate today so he could say:

As for the killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Obama did what virtually any commander-in-chief would have done in the same situation. Even President Bill Clinton says in the film “that’s the call I would have made.” For this to be portrayed as the epic achievement of the first term tells you how bare the White House cupboards are.

Here’s what Clinton actually said: “He [Obama] took the harder and the more honorable path. When I saw what had happened, I thought to myself, `I hope that’s the call I would have made.’”

Little words mean a lot. But the king of spin knows that. That’s why he leaves them out.

  1. And you have explained why I don’t read Karl Rove.


  2. It’s Karl’s job to do that, just as it is Axelrod’s. With any of them you have to account for spin.

    Actually though, Karl’s pretty cool, even if he can’t decide how to actually wear his hair or what age is going to portray from day to day.


  3. Oh, I do wish he’d go back under that rock he crawled out from. And soon.


    • He won’t . . . it’s the political season, so to him that’s like mating season. He’ll be around for another 8 months . . . I just hope he doesn’t spawn in that time.
