And just what does the spinmaster have to say this time? Plenty apparently. Thanks to Karl Rove’s “genius” i.e. playing on the racial prejudices, homophobia, and religious intolerance that millions of American bigots harbor, Rove successfully led a ditzy, ex-coke head with a famous last name to the presidency twice. Now he’s trying to do the same thing with old man McCain.
This time he plans to put us in another four years of misery by marginalizing Barack Obama as the uppity Negro.
According to ABC News, while at a breakfast with “Republican insiders” Rove said of Obama: “Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.”
Only in American politics can a Black man raised by a single mother that grew up on food stamps be described as the love child of Carlton Banks and Bryant Gumble with the chance of people actually falling for it.
If you missed this previous post, Barack Obama was getting his credit card declined at car rental places in this decade. That means, despite being involved in politics for years, he still wasn’t rich. Unlike some people, he didn’t have a trust fund to milk – be it the one handed to him by his father (Bush) or the one given to his wife (McCain).
Obama didn’t have any money until four years ago after matching that speech at the convention. That’s when white people were like, “HEY THAT’S NOT JESSE!” and then went out and bought his book. No offense, white people. I’m happy he wasn’t Jesse or Al, too.
Obama has Newport mouth and Rove’s trying to make him martini man? He can’t be serious. I wish they would lock him in a room with Michelle. She looks like the type of woman who carries a razor under-the-tongue as a security.
I’m going to give American people the benefit of the doubt this time, and assume that this old style of politics won’t work.
Rove also added that he believes Obama to be “coolly arrogant.” He does have a certain air to him, but that other description of Obama should only be believed by people with access to George Bush’s old stash. Why is Karl Rove still making the news anyway? Shouldn’t he be in jail by now?
