Karl Rove Vs. the 'Far Right'

Perhaps the terminology for the "far right" should be changed to "right so far." Principled people are best only to the degree that their principles are those which work in the real world and produce the best results. Large national governments are inefficient at best and tyrannical at worst. I agree with the Founding Fathers and see a need for enough Federal power to deal effectively with other nations and unjust insurrections but leave the bulk of the power reserved for the states and for the people respectively. Those closest to the problem are in the best position to solve the problem: individual -> family -> extended family ->church/community -> city -> county -> intra-state region -> state -> multi-state -> national -> multi-national.
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....
