Karl Rove: America’s Arrogant Social Misfit

Karl Rove is the sort of guy who if he went to his senior high school prom most likely stood on the side looking at everybody with a date. His skills as a cutthroat political adviser were never questioned until he helped steer President Bush and the Republican Party off the cliff in the 2006 elections. This morning he spoke with utter gracelessness.

ABC News' Christianne Klein reported that at a breakfast with Republican insiders at the Capitol Hill Club this morning, former White House senior aide Karl Rove referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, as "coolly arrogant."

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said, per Christianne Klein. "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."

Most likely, Karl Rove looks at Barack Obama and sees a man that he wishes he could have been but never was. Instead, he chose a path in which his ability to do significant harm to others has played a vital part. Former Alabama governor, Don Siegelman, was recently released from jail on a conviction he attributed to Karl Rove. Hopefully this travesty of justice will be a Christmas Eve nightmare to a Karl Rove, a man that makes Scrooge look like Gandhi.
