Karl Rove, a Cancer on American Politics? "Everyone says that Karl Rove is a genius. Yeah, right. So are cigarette companies. They get you to buy cigarettes even though we know they cause cancer. That is the kind of genius Karl Rove is."

Columnist Tom Friedman really wants the Republicans to suffer next Tuesday, judging by his Friday column (Times Select required) "Insulting Our Troops, and Out Intelligence."
"George Bush, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld think youre stupid. Yes, they do.
"They think they can take a mangled quip about President Bush and Iraq by John Kerry -- a man who is not even running for office but who, unlike Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, never ran away from combat service -- and get you to vote against all Democrats in this election.
"Every time you hear Mr. Bush or Mr. Cheney lash out against Mr. Kerry, I hope you will say to yourself, 'They must think Im stupid.' Because they surely do."
And apparently, Karl Rove causes cancer.
"Everyone says that Karl Rove is a genius. Yeah, right. So are cigarette companies. They get you to buy cigarettes even though we know they cause cancer. That is the kind of genius Karl Rove is. He is not a man who has designed a strategy to reunite our country around an agenda of renewal for the 21st century -- to bring out the best in us. His 'genius' is taking some irrelevant aside by John Kerry and twisting it to bring out the worst in us, so you will ignore the mess that the Bush team has visited on this country.
"And Karl Rove has succeeded at that in the past because he was sure that he could sell just enough Bush cigarettes, even though people knew they caused cancer. Please, please, for our countrys health, prove him wrong this time."
Friedman is a cancer on American society and culture and should be excised.

The Magnificent Bastard rides again!
Sounds like envy to me.
It's Rovember and Karl is an EXPLODING CIGAR!!!!!
Rove won't need to read this, he'll stare at it and intimidate the information into his head...

It's a sad day when normal people have to worry about losing an election to a gang of moonbats who have collectively lost their frickin' minds.
American commies. They're so 9/10.
Hey Friedman go back to kissing the ass of your Saudi friends and leave the analysis to actual Americans.
You're thinking of Chuck Norris...
I went to the link.......oh that Thomas Friedman......
He thinks he is smarter than GOD........honest
It wasn't all that long ago that Liberals were demanding the execution of this man, with out trial or evidence, for a crime he didn't commit....
Defeating Democrats at the Ballot Box has now become a crime worthy of execution. I NEVER thought I would live to see that in America...
Isn't Clinton, Schumer, Pelosi, Harry Reid, et.al. at cancer on American Politics?
Did Karl Rove make John Kerry say that stupid statement?
I am a bibliophile, yet Thomas Friedman is the only author whose book I actually threw in the trash rather than donate to someone. I couldn't get through it.
