Rove hotfoots it out of fundraiser for anti-gay House candidate Bachmann
Sleazebag Karl Rove dropped into Stillwater, Minnesota on Friday to appear at a fundraiser for homo-sex obsessed 6th Congressional District seat candidate Michele Bachmann. The man spoke and left before the food hit the tables. (You can see one of the actual invitations over at Is That All You’ve Got?)
White House mastermind Karl Rove was whisked inside the Water Street Inn on the St. Croix River here Friday just as a handful of protesters spotted him. He was gone before they could say anything.
…Rove described Bachmann as “a fantastic candidate” and “a great common sense conservative.”
“She wakes up in the morning and her values are ingrained in her heart,” he said. “She doesn’t need to read the newspaper or consult a poll or get a focus group to figure out what she believes. She knows what she believes and she stays in touch with the people she represents.”
But his appearance to praise her and outline Bush’s positions on the economy and terrorism may have given just as much ammunition to her opponents.

Several dozen protesters collected outside the Water Street Inn, including Stillwater accountant John Atkins, who wore a heavy black suit and a George W. Bush mask. Atkins said he wants voters to remember the ties between Bachmann and the Bush administration in November.
She’s up against Democrat Patty Wetterling and the Independence Party’s John Binkowski for the open seat.
