From the 'I Shit You Not' File: Rove Slams Politiczing

From the I Shit You Not File:


Mr. Axelrod rejects the comparison, saying that he is more of a protector of Mr. Obama's image and message than a policy maker or strategist intent on remaking the country's political DNA, as Mr. Rove often talked about. The two men have never met, but in his new role as commentator, Mr. Rove has criticized Mr. Axelrod as politicizing the White House.

I have no idea how "political" an influence David Axelrod is inside the White House. However, Karl Rove criticizing anyone for "politicizing" anyone is straight-up crazy. It's like something you'd expect to read in The Onion -- only it's actually happening in real life.
