“Karl Rove worked for John McCain, he worked for the McCain/Palin ticket, it was his job (and he was paid well,”
Prove that statement. That he was “paid well”.
Karl Rove actually gave money to McCain. And one private meeting with McCain is not “paid well”.
I’m not saying you’re wrong, but you haven’t come close to proving that Karl Rove was “paid well” by McCain / Palin.
Also, McCains campaign stated that Rove worked for them (Game change, and also the article).
How much Rove was paid, is disputed. He also worked as a so-called informal advisor to Senator Hutchinson (who ran against Perry in the recent Texas Governors primary).....
I'll concede that, since I can't prove he was paid well to try and make Palin the Vice President of the United States, but its pretty clear, he never the less worked for that campaign, and his protege Steve Schmidt (Karl Rove HAS referred to him repeatedly, in his book, and in the NY Times, he is Roves guy).
McCain/Palin was a Rove campaign, just as much as Hutchinson was. How much he was paid, we'll never know (though I doubt he worked for free, but hey, anyone is free to believe that).
