Below are a series of posts on the kerfuffle over a Tea Party
Patriots photo of Karl Rove in Nazi uniform.
TPP has made a point of apologizing to Mr. Rove, as it should.
Good for them.
As a Rove critic myself, it is important in discussions of this
nature to keep them above board and not make them personal. We
criticized a Rove spokesman for his “hater” description of Brent
Bozell, seen by some as a current slang term as opposed to its
older, generally understood use.
The point in these things is that if one has to explain a word
or a photo, one is instantly behind the game, not to mention
needlessly distracting from the issue at hand.
My colleague Quin Hillyer was right to take issue (here,
here), and as one would suspect with a group of such sterling
character, the TPP stepped up to the plate.
So – issue closed. On with the substance.
And the TPP has the substance issue in its corner.
