I'm old enough to have done battle with his kind before, so I can recognize these scoundrels a mile away. I've long suspected that Mr. Potatohead was up to no good, but for me it was confirmed the night he came on Fox News, not five minutes after Christine O'Donnell won the GOP nomination in Delaware, and ripped her to shreds like I have never seen a Republican rip another Republican to shreds in my life. He called her everything but the spawn of Satan and essentially did everything humanly possible to create a self fulfilling prophecy and make her unelectable. I knew at that precise moment that Rove was our Judas Iscariot.
