Is There Something You'd Like To Share With The Rest Of Us, Amazing Larry?
I see this morning that Drudge is all up in arms about Reuters running the "Rove Exit photo" below...
I think they may have it all wrong, though. I don't think it's an example of some photographer trying to get out ahead of the news or some shutterbug displaying his own personal agenda. Maybe -- and hear me out, because I really think I'm onto something -- maybe what we're seeing here is Karl Rove getting ready for the upcoming mid-term elections by practicing his sinister mastery of mind control technique. That is, rather than a message being sent to Mr. Rove, maybe it's Mr. Rove himself who is sending the message.
Ridiculous? Perhaps. Out of the question? Oh, wouldn't it be pretty to think so.
It actually makes more sense the more you think about it. Here are the facts: The GOP is going to have a tough time retaining control of the House and Senate in the mid-term elections. They had to spend $10 million to defend a safe Republican seat in California's 50th Congressional district. Obviously, there aren't enough rubber chicken fundraisers or YAF bake sales in the world that can raise that kind of scratch from now till November. So what else can this bunch do to affect the outcome? The same things that seems to have worked so well in Ohio and Florida. Make sure Democratic voters leave the polling stations without voting.
And how do they do that? By not providing enough voting booths to districts populated predominately by African American voters more likely to vote Democratic? By marching state police officers into the homes of elderly black voters to intimidate them and keep them at home? Oh, please! That's so "old school," so 2004. No, Rove's clearly working on something much more devious this time, something that will leave no trace of its existence.
You guessed it. Mind control.
Don't say you haven't been warned.
