Ditto on Rove: keep it simple, stupid
Karl Rove outed a covert CIA operative as political payback.
Shakes Sis is right. That line above is the whole story. It is essential that we not get caught up in the intellectual ins and outs of the Rove story when we tell it. It’s a bottom line issue about pettiness and lying. When Rove’s gyrations are conveyed simply, it pays dividends, as we see with polls taking for the Chimperor. Anybody that spends ten minutes watching human punching-bag Scotty at the briefings can see how bad this is. (Keep standing up there, doughboy.)
Rove and Co. handed this one to us on a silver platter and we better not blow it with navel-gazing commentary.
Get the message into sound bites and 30-second commercials. Sadly the sheeple don’t think, they react, so let’s play ball. If the sheeple have to wade through tons of analysis to figure out what we are trying to convey, they will switch the channel.
