In Washington, Bush’s Svengali, Karl Rove, has prominent lefties buckling with the vapours.
Rove inferred to a conservative gathering that liberals were as lame as hotplate dancing ducks after the 9/11 attacks:
“Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers,” Rove said.
He didn’t let the chance go by to rip into Democrat senator Richard J. Durbin’s remarks comparing U.S. interrogation tactics at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to those used by Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot.
“Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year?” Mr. Rove asked, referring to the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat comparing U.S. interrogation techniques at the Guantanamo Bay naval base to the Nazi and Soviet regimes.
“Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals.”
New York Democrats, it seems, actied like rich brats always do — they threw a tantrum:
“There’s a certain line that you should not cross, and last night, Karl Rove crossed that line. He didn’t just put his toe over the line; he jumped way over,” said Sen. Charles E. Schumer of New York.
“This makes me angry. It makes, I think, the American people angry,” said Sen. Jon Corzine of New Jersey. “The man is divorced from reality, and it’s nothing but pure politics — the politics of diversion, the politics of divisiveness and distortion.”
And the cry goes up from the red states: BOO-FRICKIN-HOO-HOO!!!
