Rove Concern Trolls His Foot Into His Own Mouth

30 08 2008

Okay my trusty sleuths, who made the following quote August 10th on Face the Nation?

With all due respect again to Governor P***n, she’s been a governor for two years, she’s been able but undistinguished. I don’t think people could really name a big, important thing that she’s done. She was mayor of one of the smallest cities in America. And again, with all due respect to Wasilla, Alaska, it’s smaller than Chula Vista, California; Aurora, Colorado; Mesa or Gilbert, Arizona; north Las Vegas or Henderson, Nevada. It’s not a big town. So if she were to pick Governor P***n, it would be an intensely political choice where he said, `You know what? I’m really not, first and foremost, concerned with, is this person capable of being president of the United States?

Give up yet?  Of course you don’t give up, but I’m going to tell you anyhow.  It was Karl Rove.  Yes Karl Asshat Rove!  Yeah, no shit!

Well okay, it was a trick question because Karl Rove wasn’t talking about Sarah Palin but was actually concern trolling over Obama possibly picking Virginia Governor Tim Kaine as his VP.  In the original quote he mentions that Governor Kaine has been in office three years (not less than two like Gov. Palin) and he was originally the mayor of Richmond Virginia (population of 200,000+ versus Mayor Palin’s reign over a population of 5,600ish). Did I mention that Virginia has a population of 7,712,091 and a GDP of $383 million whereas Alaska has a population of 683,478 and a GDP of $44.5 million?  You don’t suppose Karl will express his concern that McCain selected an even less qualified VP for intensely political reasons rather than selecting the most capable person?

Yeah, a trick question and an innane rhetorical question in the same post.  So sue me.
