Rove ain't all that

"Karl Rove's un-American attacks on those who disagree with him deserve the condemnation they're receiving...He's a socially inept but patient thug whose willingness to haunt the nation's dark political alleys for years, waiting for the right time and the right victims, is too often taken for unparalleled political intelligence, writes Glenn Smith. Rove's a hack. His strength comes from his immorality...I'm asked all the time about the need for Democrats to find their own Karl Rove. If we ever find such a monster in our midst, we should exile him. I like the black hat Rove wears, but it troubles me that so many people believe he really is a political genius. He's just pathological...I don't recommend therapy for Bin Laden. But Rove might give Dr. Laura a call." Read the whole thing and thank Glenn profusely for shattering a crippling myth.
