Democratic Rep. Van Hollen to Rove: "You've Tried to Revise History" [VIDEO]

This post, written by Cliff Schecter, originally appeared on Brave New Films

This man is quite simply a sociopath. He has no shame, no compassion, no concern for those he's hurt or care for the truth. And he's been an complete and utter failure in his role in government.

Andy Card, Chief of Staff for the Bush Junta while Rove was there, and Ari Fleischer, Bush's spokesman, just recently called Rove a liar because of his ridiculous claim that Congress, and not the President, wanted the Iraq War vote to come before the 2002 election (of course, don't take Card and Fleischer's word for it, look at or listen to ANYTHING from that time period).

Yesterday morning he added to his ignominy and lied about Tom Daschle personally, and Democratic Congressman Chris Van Hollen slapped down his silliness with ease.

Please, Karl, go back on the lithium, or how about just crawling back into whatever sewer you slinked out of this morning?

The simple reality is that Rove is the living, walking, breathing caricature of a slime-oozing used car salesman. And his Iraq lemmon ain't selling.
