Karl Rove Has $200 Million To Screw Around With

News

Oh man, Karl Rove. Here we all were in 2008 thinking that he'd finally leave the highest ranks of presidential politics and probably go to jail or pick his nose under the railroad tracks all day or something. Instead, here we are with the 2012 presidential election and Rove is running the Republican side yet again, onlythis time with more money at his disposal and no boss to report to -- because, of course, Super PACs are not allowed to and would most certainly never coordinate with actual campaigns.


Rove's MegaUltraSuperPAC, American Crossroads, is about to begin its purported $200 million dollar ad blitz to "define" the president as no friend of the American people. They are sure to be respectful, classy ads simply pointing out differences in policy preferences (and did you know he's from Kenya, too?):

Steven J. Law, the group’s leader, said the ads would address the challenge of unseating a president who polls show is viewed favorably even though many people disapprove of his handling of the economy. Basically, Mr. Law said, “how to dislodge voters from him.”

Emphasis ours, because it said "how to dislodge voters from him." Did you see how it said “how to dislodge voters from him"? Classic.

And again, there's no evidence that this $200 million ad campaign is in any way connected with the Mitt Romney presidential campaign, because that would be illegal. Anyway, congrats on the new job, Ed Gillespie!

Crossroads was founded with help from the Republican strategists Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie — the latter just signed on as an adviser to Mr. Romney — and so far it has largely been sitting on the sidelines, studying the electorate and planning for the fall as the Republican nominating contest continued.

This election sucks.

The Dumb Song Of J. Dinesh Prufrock

A quick Dear Shitferbrains for you smart kids today, in response to our recent piece on Dinesh D'Souza's continued insistence that historian Kevin M. Kruse please bitchslap him with facts again and again. It turns out we picked the wrong historian to lionize, according to "Hadding Scott," who dropped by to let us know we had foolishly referred to a mere Princeton professor instead of to the most comprehensive take-down-er of D'Souza's lies, "Hadding Scott" himself.

Among the primary results from Tuesday that we didn't report: Chris Murphy, US Senator from Connecticut, managed to hold on to the Democratic nomination for a second term. Actually, if you want to get all technical about it, he didn't win the nom Tuesday -- he'd already been nominated at the state party convention in May, and the Dem primary was cancelled since Murphy was the only one to file. Murphy's also heavily favored to win reelection this fall. The biggest question for Murphy is whether he's hoping to seek some other office in a couple years. (As if any prominent Democratic senator hasn't already mentally compared their inaugural crowd size to Trump's.)
