Kevin Drum has a terrific post dealing with the nature of top Bush scumbag Karl Rove and what life in Washington might be like without him. To me, Rove represents everything that is wrong with the modern Republican Party, not the least of which is the hypocrisy behind the nauseating, pseudo-Christian facade he continually displays. My favorite part of Drum's article is a quote taken from an Esquire magazine article by Ron Suskind. It's about how Rove gets when he's angry:
Inside, Rove was talking to an aide about some political stratagem in some state that had gone awry and a political operative who had displeased him. I paid it no mind and reviewed a jotted list of questions I hoped to ask. But after a moment, it was like ignoring a tornado flinging parked cars. "We will fuck him. Do you hear me? We will fuck him. We will ruin him. Like no one has ever fucked him!"
Yes, this is what he's really like. I'm ashamed and embarrassed that such a vile excuse for a human is running our country and dragging it toward utter ruin. He's a traitor, a fraud, a liar, and the worst thing to happen to American politics in a hundred years.
