The Fool(s) on the Hill see the sun going down.... going down on Republican congressional political hopes for this fall, that is. And what does the fool (or do the fools, plural) do? BLAME KARL ROVE. Idiots. Please quote me again: Idiots.
I have heard this before, but now it's in print. Today in In the Loop in the Wash Post, a "GOP insider on the Hill" said this: "Republicans say Karl Rove is the architect. He's the architect of our demise."
If I could, I would find out who this idiot is and throttle him. I guess he doesn't think the GOP demise on the Hill has anything to do with the Republicans' own terrible, inexcusable, pathetic, craven, cowardly, unprincipled, whore-ish behavior from 1998 through 2006 in full, and 2007 and 2008 in part. If he doesn't think that, though, he's delusional. Earmarks rising by something like 1800 percent (that's off the top of my head, but I think it's accurate). Domestic discretionary spending rising for eight years at well over twice the inflation rate. The prescription drug bill. The Farm Bills of 2002 and 2008. The K Street Project and all of Tom DeLay's hardball tactics with lobbyists, his shakedowns (if you no hire one of our Republican guys, you no get access!), and his pork tradeoffs. Jack Abramoff. Rep. Foley. Scanlon. Duke Cunningham. Refusal to do any serious ethics reforms. Abandonment of Contract-with-America ethics rules, including the gift bans and the price limits on free food. And so on and so on and so on. Ineptness on top of ineptness, cravenness on top of cravenness, corruption on top of corruption.
Instead, these guys still are trying to pin all their misfortune on Karl Rove.
Excuse makers are morons.
