Karl Rove's entire professional life has consisted mostly of
thinking up sleazy, underhanded tricks to play on his employer's
political opponents. It says something about the dismal values
of conservative Americans that they accept his vulgar ministrations
as necessary to the proper functioning of Republican politics.
There has never been, to my recollection, an analogous Democratic
counterpart to Mr. Rove. Certainly there are Democratic operatives
that strategize and triangulate situationally in order to benefit
their candidate, but no one on Obama's or Clinton's staff ever
placed hidden listening devices in their bosses offices and
blamed it on the other party. This Rove did for his client,
Bill Clements, back in the mid 80s. The FBI subsequently found
that the bug was so woefully inadequate as a listening device
(its battery ran dry after mere hours) that it was obviously
just a plant, though no charges were ever filed. But its dirty
work had been done and Bill Clements went on to win a very
tight race for Texas governor.
Although I applaud a bit of harmless mischief-making I have
to say that if my representative to Congress visibly employed
someone with such an odious resume' as Karl Rove's I'd be in
his office the next day doing a little 'bugging' of my own.

|It’s great living in the country,
Herbert. Where else can you hear a cow calling to its calf,
see a lark building its nest in a cache of reeds, smell
the aroma of puppies beng sacrificed to Cthulhu over at
Karl Rove’s place?
