    In order to maintain an untenable position, you have to be actively ignorant*. —Stephen Colbert
    *actively ignorant means lying, cheating and stealing to achieve the desired result.

    Who pays Rove’s salary and expenses? Is he privately funded? By whom? Is he funded by taxpayer dollars? If so, WHY? John Boehner, can you answer us that?

    My guess is he’s paid through is PACs.

    “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” — Upton SInclair (1934).

    He “is dull, naturally dull; but it must have taken him a great deal of pains to become what we now see him. Such an excess of stupidity, sir, is not in Nature.” — Samuel Johnson (1709-1784).

    Johnson was speaking of Thomas Sheridan, but I think it one of the great barbs of history. It doesn’t really apply to Rove. Rove is a very smart man, I won’t dispute it, but smart is not the same thing as wise. Many of Rove’s sort have brains, what they lack is wisdom.

    Interesting how librals were so concern about Cheney’s heart. Yet he is still today Ok and in his right mind. Yet you have Biden who has not been in his right mind for a long time.
    ah, poor liberals can not handle a little mud thrown on the next anointed one. They can sure sling it. So if it was not brain damage why can she not remember what happened on 9 11 12?
    “what difference does it make?” Obama got re elected and she does not have to run against Mitt.

    It was the press that said he said
    “Of course she doesn’t have brain damage,” he said in an interview with The Washington Post.
    But Rove said that it is apparent that Clinton suffered “a serious health episode.” He added that if she runs for president in 2016, “she is going to have to be forthcoming” about the details of where, how and when it happened.

    As a conservative I wish Rove and the Tea party would go away

    Let’s see: Nixon was a sleazebag back when Joe McCarthy was a sleazebag. Rove was a sleazebag much later in Nixon’s sleazebag career. Where is Edward R. Murrow when we need him?

    Oh, yeah, Cheney. Back when Rove said it was dishonorable to bring a politician’s health into the discussion.

    What’s really funny is listening to the same Tea-Party folks who were bashing Rove as a RINO only a couple of years back now rushing to defend him

    It’s good to remember that Rove is only performing the same skills he learned when working for Nixon — spreading lies and rumors. The difference this time is that he was recorded doing so.

    If I remember correctly, Rove’s mentor was good old Lee Atwater the Master Of Mud
