If you enjoy seeing an enemy’s nose rubbed in the dirt, you’ll love this story.

Remember all of Karl “Tokyo” Rove’s attacks and snide remarks about the TEA party movement? Remember how he worked so hard to defeat TEA party backed candidates, belittling them at every opportunity? Well, all of that vitriol and bile has come back to bite Tokyo in the ass.

He collected a massive $325 million war chest in the lead up to the 2012 elections, but misspent almost all of it. Rove, was a man who we could trust; he was a guy who would use our money to fight and win the battle to regain the Senate and hold the House or so we thought; but he lied to us.

Instead the loathsome snake took the money and declared an open war on...

I like to see it. I wonder what is expected, given that 2012 was a presidential election.

It seems a bit odd that conservatives only figured this out now, since Rove has been doing this ever since Bush’s second election campaign. Better late than never.

But I wonder if the big drop in donor money may also be not-particularly-conservative big-money donors, who don’t so much disagree with Rove in principle as finally see that when it comes to winning elections he is a money-wasting loser.

It should also reverberate some of our Fox prime time anchors to stop shoving him down our throats . . .

“From ‘frothing at the mouth’ feast to ‘frittering on the edge of oblivion’ famine.. wow.”

Rove was always more myth than fact. His guy barely won the 2000 race and if it wasn’t for the Swifties in 2004, he would have lost to the idiot Kerry.

Rove, McConnell, and the GOP clown that call Conservatives “exotics” the day after the 2012 elections deserve to lose and lose big in their next elections.

May they never even get elected to dog catcher

“2% is still a lot of money.” not when it has to support several campaigns.

This is interesting .. I had noticed recently that Rove was no longer bad-mouthing the Tea Party - IN PUBLIC.

And .. everybody should check out Rush’s program today .. he’s been talking about a new strategy from the GOP elites .. and if it’s true .. it’s mind-boggling.

There will be new front groups put up to take the money that Rove got.

Opening a line of Chinese Tea Party Houses may be a good investment.

I'll never forget what he did to Christine O'Donnell's campaign and what he almost did to Deb Fischer's campaign.

Rove is scum.

Karl Rove not only lacks principles--not only betrays traditional American values. He is analytically dysfunctional. That is a very bad combination.

To understand the Rovian folly that cost the Republicans Congress in 2006, and made Obama's election possible, check out Conservative Dilemma, 2006: Rove Directed Republican Disaster.

Rove, whether deliberately or foolishly, is an albatross around the Republican neck. It is a pity that so few really understand that.

Tokyo Rove is an apt name. I wonder what Sean Hannity thinks about this. Kinda hard to miss a 98% drop in support.
