Karl Rove has been on television
a fair amount this year. It's quite a change from when he was ensconced in the White House, rarely speaking out and even then only at closed Republican gatherings.
Rove's recent pronouncement that Barack Obama is like a country club jerk, do two things:
- Show what kind of unpleasant guy Rove really is (pace Broder's praise of him)
- Tie McCain to Bush since Rove was one of the closest advisors to Bush and now he's touting McCain.
