Maybe Rove Has a Point

"----Rove has a point, as well. Purely as a tactical matter, why not weed out inept -- or insane -- candidates before they start spouting off about a woman's organic ability to prevent pregnancy when raped?" So who has the "right" to "weed out" inept--or --insane candidates? And who determines who is inept? Does the ego-maniac Rove fancy himself to be the all powerful brilliant entity that gets to decide who is in and who is out? Oh, that's right, he already picked the inept losers. Rove picked McCain and Romney,----both inept and at least one of them appears insane at times. Your dig at Todd Akin shows that you haven't learned a thing from the last election. If you want a perfect candidate then you bad better recruit Jesus Christ.

Rove listed off tons of Tea Party candidates whom he financially supported, either personally or through his PAC.

Care to comment on those, or are you just determined to further divide the Right?

He supported them after opposing them. John Kerry would be proud.

I'll take Todd Akin any day before another bumbling fool like McCain or Romney, or as in Wisconsin, Tommy Thompson.

Bullseye!

No, it was that he hadn't studied the issue closely enough to simply say the right thing: that rape is a horrible crime that cannot be made less horrible by killing an innocent preborn baby.

Dedicated to human rights? How awful.

After his blunder, Akin should have dropped out. Not for his pro human rights position, but because he was inartful in explaining it.
Let's put ideology aside for a moment.

Karl Rove, architect of the George W. Bush-era Republican victories, says he's sick of fanatics running his party into the ground. So he's devised a strategy to pre-emptively sink unelectable candidates early in the process. He's formed a new super PAC to implement this strategy. It's called the Conservative Victory Project, and it's led by a guy named Steven Law, who was the head of another super PAC, called American Crossroads, which went something like 0-7 in the 2012 election cycle. (Not that anyone's counting.)

Grass-roots conservatives, needless to say, are quite perturbed. "I'm filing the...
