And if you think that's a shame, suddenly you're Judas. = Mac, you're missing the point. Nowhere did I suggest CD was the perfect candidate or even the right candidate. I am well aware of her flaws. But what purpose did it serve for Karl Rove to expose all of her flaws in rapid fire not five minutes after she was nominated? Once it was a fait accompli and she was the nominee, since when does it make sense for a prominent Republican to go on national TV and recite a laundry list of reasons people should not vote for our nominee?

These Rovites love to quote the Buckley rule, but what about Reagan's 11th Commandment, Thou Shall not Speak ill of another Republican, particularly AFTER they are our official nominee.

Apparently Rove has no use for that rule.
If I were launching a new conservative venture, the last venue I'd choose for the announcement would be the New York Times. Karl Rove has gone to the Times to announce that he has created a new "conservative" entity "to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts."

Rove argues that Republican fortunes have been ruined by "far-right conservatives," but he's shamelessly calling this entity the "Conservative Victory Project." Yes, and I could call myself Ray Lewis, but it doesn't make it so.

Whaddaya know? The liberal Democrats at the Times love this idea....
