This week, Karl Rove has an editorial in Newsweek titled “A Way Out of the Wilderness” in which he proposes a plan for leading the GOP back to victory.
I know! No, really! Karl Rove! The incompetent guide who spent eight years leading you off into the wilderness, all the while asserting that he knew exactly what he was doing, now wants you to believe he knows the way back home. That’s like taking navigation lessons from the captain of the Exxon Valdez.
Given my political leanings, I know you’ll find my advice suspect, but let me offer you some advice of my own. While you’re in the middle of figuring out what kind of party you should be now (be that “The Fiscally-Responsible, Small-Government, Pro-Business Party”, or the “Theoconservative Mudslinging Party of the South and Plains States”), here’s what you should do with Karl Rove: well, okay, what you should do is put him in an orange jumpsuit and then put him behind bars where he belongs, but barring that, you should put him back under a rock, leave him there, and ignore any more of his “wisdom”.
