Leftwing Bohemians Unnerved By Karl Rove's Confidence
Why is that man smiling? And why is he so CONFIDENT? Doesn't Karl Rove know that the Democrats are going to win a landslide victory this year? Isn't that what all the polls are telling us? So why is the Left in general and the Leftwing Bohemians in particular so unnerved by Karl Rove? Perhaps they know the matchup is Howard Dean vs Karl Rove. Despite their vocal support of Dean they know Rove is like the Stonewall Jackson of political strategery. Like General Joseph Hooker, Dean & Co. are loudly proclaiming their glorious victory before the battle has even taken place. So why so nervous when we all know of Hooker's great victory over Jackson at Chancellorsville? Right? Let us now analyze the campaign nervousness of two Bohemian types: Mrs. Norman Lear and Jayne Lyn Stahl who describes herself as a poet, playwright, and screenwriter. First we begin with Mrs. Norman Lear in this HUffington POST not very confidentally titled, "Why is the White House so Eerily Confident about the Coming Elections?" This will be followed by a lot of laughs inadertently provided by Ms. Stahl in her HUffington POST titled with equal nervousness, "Why Is Karl Rove Smiling?" So let us now enter the Bohemian world of Hollyweird and watch the glitterati losing their confidence in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, breaking out the white whine and cheese, is in the [brackets]:
Why is the White House so Eerily Confident about the Coming Elections?
[Maybe they know this election contest pits Howard Dean against Karl Rove, Mrs. Norman Lear. Hee! Hee!]
All week I've been reading in disparate sources from Drudge to US News and World Report about Bush, Rove and Cheney being overly confident about the midterm elections. Even Republican strategists are increasingly concerned because the White House doesn't have a plan if they lose. This lack of planning shouldn't surprise anyone, but if you really think about it a creepy, crawly feeling grows in your gut.
[You mean a creepy, crawly feeling in YOUR gut, Mrs. Norman Lear. ]
Here are some questions: Are these guys simply narcissistic idiots Rove-ing around in some never-never land bubble or do they know something we don't? Have they planned a grab bag nose punch of an October/November surprise? Or have Diebold, ES&S, and local state secretaries assured them that they will do "whatever it takes" to get a Republican Congress elected again? Or are they just planning to outspend us? Karl Rove recently told the Washington Times, "For most Americans, particularly the marginal voters who are going to determine the outcome of the election, it started a couple of weeks ago... Between now and the election we will spend $100 million in target House and Senate races in the next 21 days". That is $30 million a week in 15 or 16 key races. Knowing this group, the answers must lie in a clever blitzkrieg combo of all of the above.
[Beware the Rovember Surprise, Mrs. Norman Lear.]
When I asked Gore Vidal at dinner why the White House seemed so serene and at ease about the vote, he replied that, this time around, the Bush-Cheney henchmen could simply call on martial law. He glumly noted that we are so far down the road toward totalitarianism that, even if Democrats do win back the Congress, it would take at least two generations before the last six years of damage to the nation could be reversed. Gore frankly despaired that any amount of time could ever return the country to where and what it previously was. This prediction left me reaching for some Fernet Branca.
[When leftwing bohemians want to take the pulse of the public, they consult with Gore Vidal who lives in a castle in Italy. Oh, and enjoy your Fernet Branca, Mrs. Norman Lear.]
We all know the neocons won't cede power easily. They have to be aware that if the tide of Congress turns, Bush's last two years will be mired in gridlock and perhaps even be punctuated by several embarrassing congressional investigations. Of course, Cheney did say last week that everything in Iraq is hunky dory, which leads one to believe that after James Baker's devastating report and the escalating mass destruction of the war, Dickey-boy has simply lost it. But whether it is hubris, loony tunes, or both, the White House's freakish calm about the elections makes me as nervous as the hell we seem to be headed for. Therefore we should all be on alert. If for whatever reason we don't win back Congress in November the only real answer will be to take to the streets.
[Mrs. Norman Lear of Beverly Hills advocates taking it to the street if the Democrats don't win the Congress but the big question is if this will mean she will have to cancel her Rodeo Drive hairdresser's appointment. Now on to the equally bohemian, JAYNE LYN STAHL...]
Why Is Karl Rove Smiling?
[Maybe he knows something you don't. Hee! Hee!]
It was hard to miss the ear-to-ear grin on the face of Karl Rove, chief advisor to the president, in the Washington Post earlier this week as he paused for a photo-op with Mr. Bush. Why was he smiling? Can it be because unlike his friend, Scooter Libby, the vice president's top aide, Rove is off the hook in the Plame leak case on charges that he committed perjury, lied to investigators, and could well have been the one to expose the undercover CIA agent's identity which, by the way, is a felony? Apparently not. Republican party operatives say that Rove's current euphoria derives from his conviction that his party will only lose a maxium of 8 to 10 seats in November's midterm election, and will maintain control of both the House and Senate.
[But wasn't Karl Rove indicted last May 12?]
With a whomping 74% of the American people saying they're dissatisfied with Congress, according to a CNN poll, if Rove's party holds the reins for another 2 to 6 years, who knows, that number may soon grow to 100%. Still, what can we expect from Congress? Can we expect them to stand up to a president running afoul of our Constitution, and international law? Can we expect them to begin a probe as to the legality of a war that is draining us morally, spiritually, taking squandering human life without purpose? What's more, can there ever be a purpose, or justification, for squandering human life?
[And the CNN polls can NEVER be wrong. Why, they are almost as accurate as exit polls.]
What do we expect from Congress? Do we expect them to vote down legislation that legitimizes abrogation of due process, habeas corpus, and the Magna Carta, as well as radically redefining once internationally-recognizable terms, and concepts like torture? Can we expect them to stand up to a president who has the same ethos and principles as any other neighborhood bully? Were it possible to bring back those who farmed under Russia's Peter the Great, or those who were held at the concentration camp at Babi Yar, or even those rolling around in the blood and entails of ethnic cleansing under Milosevic, they might laugh at us, and think how hopelessly naive we are to think scruples, honor, and unflagging belief in those precepts upon which our nation was founded are anything more than theoretic goals, and they may be right. But, there's a grace period for naivete after which one is no longer naive, but criminally negligent, and, alas, our grace period is almost up.
[There never was a concentration camp at Babi Yar. It was the ravine site of a massacre by the Nazis during WWII. However, why bother letting facts get in the way of your ignorant diatribe. You're on a roll, Jayne. As to your equally ignorant citation of the Magna Carta, I wasn't aware that we have American barons that seek limits on the power of our king. Of course, the Magna Carta had an influence on our CONSTITUTION but we don't operate under the Magna Carta.]
Don't tell Karl Rove that as, indeed, he might also be smiling because he knows, over the next few weeks, odds are good that North Korea will test yet another nuclear weapon putting "national security" back on the table, making it a meat and potatoes issue on the plates of the American people while, at the same time, spoonfeeding us the pablum that any nation, or person, who deals with agents of terror, like Iran and Al Qaeda, must face "a grave consequence," as the president said yesterday on ABC news. Karl Rove's grin may best be summed up in those three magical words uttered by our president with respect to the outcome of potential North Korean aggression: "a grave consequence," which suggest three other portentous words we've heard lots during recent months: "the October surprise." Looks like North Korea, and not Iran, might be the surprise that tips the scales in favor of the preemptive warriors, and great crusaders of the radical right.
[Never try to unlock the secrets of the Rovember Surprise.]
While many have been hoping for regime change in Washington,D.C., Rove, Bush, Cheney & Co. have been busily at work on "a grave consequence," paving the way for regime change in North Korea, for starters, and ensuring control over America's domestic and foreign policies for decades to come.
[One snap of Master Rove's finger and Li'l Kim of North Korea will immediately roll over.]
Arguably, the only way a grassroots, homegrown struggle for social justice, and a renaissance in representational government can occur is if the Democrats spoil the party for Rove, and Bush, take North Korea back from the Republicans, turn it around such that North Korea can only be viewed as proof of yet another failed foreign policy for the Bush administration, an exercise in bad judgment, as well as a noxious habit of making greed the default priority allowing Kim Jong to grow, and flex his nuclear biceps while we were out bombing Baghdad. So, it may be that North Korea has cooked up our October surprise, and is working with this administration to spoon feed us pap that only American jihadists can protect us from attack.
[Li'l Kim is working hand in hand with Karl Rove in order to keep Republicans in power...according to the ravings of a certain deluded bohemian type. And now on to the shouts from the HUffie Peanut Gallery...]
Herr Rove is smiling because the October surprise has yet to be unleashed, the nature of which we can only speculate. My feeling is that it will be an Iran strike, maybe even with nukes. Then we will have a double-wartime president who will claim to need all the support he needs in these hard time. Or those pesky elections may be suspended with a widespread crackdown on dissenters.Other ideas on this, folks?
[Yeah. Karl Rove declares war on the Klingons and declares this is reason that the Democrats should be unable to have a voice in the Federation.]
Rove is smiling because he has been meeting with Diebold and his friends in corporate media.
[All your Diebolds belong to US!]
He's smiling because Diebold has already won these elections. Since I will not be voting along GOP lines, I guess my vote will be lost. Oh, wait. I'M voting ABSENTEE! IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR VOTE TO GO TO WASTE, VOTE BY ABSENTEE BALLOT. AT LEAST THERE IS A PAPER TRAIL.
[Your absentee vote will be recorded by a Diebold scanner.]
Karl Rove is definitely a master manipulator, but even he cannot control North Korea's actions. I think he is smiling because he is going to rig the elections using Diebold machines. Want evidence? Bush has no plan if Republicans lose the election, which means they have to win. Bush doesn't seem to worried about the elections. This is the same crap that happened in the national elections.
[Give up NOW and bow before the genius of Master Rove!]
"SURPRISE!....Ezra Klein thinks we should take conspiracy theories more seriously. Tom Engelhardt obliges after learning that the special tribunal in Iraq has scheduled the verdict in the Saddam Hussein trial for November 5:
[Remember, remember, the Fifth of November.]
Turd Burglar defintely has something up his sleeve - there is still plenty of october left for his "surprise" and I am sure its a doozy. The longer they can hold out and get closer to the election the better so there will be no time to check it out or the dems to counter. Democrats shouldn't be counting their committee chairs just yet.
[October? No. It is the Rovember Surprise you must fear.]
I view Karl Rove as the greatest traitor to his country the world has ever produced. Quisling? Small potatoes! Only Julius Caeser and his predecessors, Cornellius Sulla and Marius betrayed their nation and national culture more to end the republic to build a totalitarian empire ruled by one family.
[Beware of Karlus Rovius!]
He isn't just smiling, he's gloating, which means he has something up his sleve.
Why are the neocons so confident? Because they have stolen 3 straight elections. And they feel confident they can steal a 4th. The boys at Diebold will do their share again. Until we fix this VERY serious issue, there will never be a fair election again. One thing is for sure, if the bastards do win again, get ready to goosestep and raise your right arm upward.
[Goosestep with upraised arm into your local WalMart Detention Center.]
It might be a little tougher this time to rig the votes but now there is nothing stopping this regime from imposing martial law, filling up those Halliburton "detention centers" and having their way with us. They have the weapons but we must use our numbers. We may all just have to get out of our cushy chairs and go fight and maybe die for our country. Fight the terrorists over here. I pray none of this happens as do all of you.
[Halliburton Detention Centers? I thought it was the WalMart Detention centers. Kindly get your whacky conspiracy theories in synch.]
Most of America is STILL in denial about what really happened on 9/11/01 and in the next six weeks in New York, N.Y., in spite of the revelations as to the "take down" of the THREE buildings involved; the cover-up succeeded beyond Cheney's wildest dreams and continues unquestioned to this day BY MOST AMERICANS! It is indeed the SECOND MOST SUCESSFULL "COUP" perpetrated against the USA following the JAMES BAKER engineered "PUTSCH" carried our by the BUSH-FAMILY-OWNED-SCOTUS that placed George W. Bush in the white house in the first place. All the destruction of our CONSTITUTION that has followed with only a few sickening whimpers from the "RUBBER STAMP CONGRESS' and the "GO-ALONG-TO-GET-ALONG-LETS-MAKE-A-DEAL-SENATE" including the "leadership" of the BELTWAY DEMOCRATS would be enough to teach the FASCIST CABAL NOW DRIVING THIS NATION TO SELF DESTRUCTION all the self confidence necessary to explain the EXCESSIVE HUBRIS AND OBVIOUSLY self-energising "faith" in the "perceived" INVINCIBILITY OF the NEW FASCIST ORDER!
Now is all this just TOO NOT AMAZING?
