I just finished watching Karl Rove trashing GOP Senate primary winner Christine ODonnell. It was on Sean Hannitys FNC show. Might as well have been Olbermann on MSNBC. The establishment Beltway strategist couldnt even bother with an obligatory word of congratulations for ODonnell. He criticized her character and rectitude and claimed she hadnt answered questions about her financial woes. She did so here. Rove mocked her security concerns as nutty. Yet, her concerns have been more than justified. See here (second video clip).
Rove came across as an effete sore loser instead of the supposedly brilliant and grounded GOP strategist that hes supposed to be. Expect more Washington Republicans to start sounding like Tea Party-bashing libs as their entrenched incumbent friends go down. (Hot Air has the Rove/Hannity video.)

That’s a respectful, but ‘get-the-point-across’ missive. Kudos. :-)
The argument is being framed wrong. The question shouldn’t be “can a Tea Party candidate win without Republican establishment support?” Rather, “can the Republican establishment survive without Tea Party support?”
Karl Rove has gone into hiding...
The NRSC web site has slowed to a crawl.
Please call and/or Email the GOP of Delaware to request they support ODonnell. Even if you favored Castle, ODonnell is our canidate and crucial for a Senate Majority.
(repeating facedodge’s post)
Rove, revealing himself as a ranking member of the ruling class. He doesn’t want that to change, which it will if the Tea Party continues to increase in power.
I sent Mr. Rove an e-mail last night after the hannity show, here is his response to me:
If we attack President Obama for putting people who can’t pay their taxes into his Administration, how can we defend a Republican candidate who doesn’t pay her taxes, her college bills, or her mortgage; has had no visible means of support; and sued a reputable conservative organization claiming she was the victim of sex discrimination? She didn’t win the lawsuit: her employer said she was fired for trying to run her own pr consulting firm out of their offices while on their clock. We conservatives want conservative candidates, but we do our cause little good by nominating people with serious questions about their fitness and character
I just watched the video. She’s very, very good.
You go, PaForBush.
I couldn’t have said that better myself.
I forwarded your message to the RNC big whig that I know.
Fairest thing I can say is politicians in general are jackasses, or worse. We are seeing the pettiness and arrogance of certain republicans.
Karl Rove acted like an absolute 2 year old, bashing the winning candidate.
Let’s see, wasn’t it the “Architect” and Bush that started this gawdawful spending spree. What an architect!
I have been calling all morning..all reps busy helping others, and voice mail full.
Looks like Karl is just repeating George Soros’ talking point$.
Good advice to her. I'm curious to see though, whether the RINO establishment going to stop trying to sabotage her campaign? If she gets elected without their help are they going to try to punish her by making her ineffective as a Senator?
Funny how college dropout Karl bashes O’Donnell about her college bills.
We don't wuv you anymore and we want a divorce.
meanwhile is anyone watching the Democrat primaries?
are incumbants out there?
The plan so far,
first we vote out the RINOs in the primaries.
Second we vote out the Rats in the general elections.
so far so good...
Rove is paid. He is earning his fees.
