M.C. Rove

Thursday, March 29, 2007

I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

The token Negro in the background is what really makes it.

Update: Well this has been getting endless, excruciating play all day. Getting thumbs down, mostly. But Paul Slansky on The Huffington Post really nails it.

Where to begin? The repetitive joking about tearing off the heads of small animals by the chief advisor to the man who passed his childhood days blowing up frogs with firecrackers? The repulsive "comedian" making between-the-lines allusions to child molestation? The alleged journalist David Gregory crawling so far up Karl Rove's ass that you can see his head coming out of Rove's mouth?

Pooh-pooh the Bush/Hitler comparisons all you want, but this hideous display of otherworldly shamelessness on the part of EVERYONE ON THE STAGE AND EVERYONE WHO LAUGHED OR APPLAUDED evokes nothing so much as those home movies of Hitler, Goering and pals partying while millions were being annihilated. This clip will be referenced by future historians as a key moment in the ongoing progression of America's forfeiting all claims of moral superiority over any other nation.

Rove does nothing by accident.

This was a racist "signal" to "the base" of the GOP. You know them: unreconstructed racists, misogynists, xenophobes, and homophobes. Nice bunch of people (not). Same as Ann Coulter's "faggot" remark directed at Senator Edwards was also a calculated appeal to the vile "base" supporters of the GOP.

This act of buffoonery was as well-calculated as Rove's "offhand" remark about illegal immigrants:

...at a Republican luncheon yesterday, White House adviser Karl Rove was overheard explaining the Bush amnesty immigration plan by saying, "I don't want my 17-year-old son to have to pick tomatoes or make beds in Las Vegas."

The message? The white male Christian patriarchy isn't going to take any shit off the Others. You know: women, gays, non-Christians, non-whites...
