What Goes Around

"What would Jesus do now?"
|Like so many of us, Jesus was a Liberal|
when he was in college, but after reading
Atlas Shrugged he became a conservative
like His Father.
|The Conservative Victory Project is also targeting|
potential liberal candidates. Rove is running smear ads
against actress Ashley Judd in Kentucky based on rumors
that she might run against Senate minority leader
Karl Rove continues to promote this approach, even though his American Crossroads PAC failed to produce the promised 2012 Republican presidency. He is attempting to save his political career with a new organization, the Conservative Victory Project. Karl easily recognizes the problems that caused failure in 2012, because they are the very monsters he created. Local primaries enjoy a kind of drunken naked mud wrestling approach to politics, but the same tactics are off-putting to more prissy swing voters at the national level, who consist mainly of women and the minorities Neo-conservatism has targeted to exemplify social decay. He is confident that he can wrest the negative spotlight from party base anarchists by employing the same dirty tricks and smear tactics successfully used on Democrats to defeat ultra-conservative candidates in Republican primaries, with the intent of presenting more viable candidates to conservative voters.
|Neocons love to attack opponents|
with Nazi imagery. Ironically, Joseph
Goebbels invented many of the
propaganda techniques used by Rove.
They may have finally found the right
fit for the costume.
With the impending retirement of Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, Iowa voters are looking at the first open Senate seat since 1974. Rove is employing his considerable political resources to make sure that Representative Steve King, a Tea Party candidate, does not run in the local primary. King is a colorful politician who backs up Todd Akin on his legitimate rape comments and has compared illegal immigrants to dogs. He trails a back-wash of foul smelling slimy rhetoric that Republicans now understand to be distasteful to more discriminant national voters. Rove's Conservative Victory Project intends to place a more palatable centrist candidate in the running.
|Rep. Steve King of Iowa exemplifies what|
has to go. His rehetoric alienates the very
voters that the Republican Party now
recognize as crucial to their success.
|If the enemy of my enemy|
is my friend, then Liberals just
inherited Karl Rove. Faced with
the workings of modern American
politics, Sun Tzu would have blown
his own brains out.
