Lets put ideology aside for a moment.
Karl Rove, architect of the George W. Bush-era Republican victories, says hes sick of fanatics running his party into the ground. So hes devised a strategy to preemptively sink unelectable candidates early in the process. Hes formed a new super PAC to implement this strategy. Its called the Conservative Victory Project, and its led by a guy named Steven Law, who was the head of another super PAC, called American Crossroads, which went something like 0-7 in the 2012 election cycle. (Not that anyones counting.)
Grass-roots conservatives, needless to say, are quite perturbed. Im filing the paperwork to form a super PAC to support freedom-loving conservative alternatives to (Karl Rove) on FOX, tweeted former Rep. Joe Walsh. Surely, he wont be the last to counter Roves efforts

Not an endorsement, but food for thought
Ok. He's ugly too.
I left the R’s when they controlled the two branches and still spent like drunken sailors. It seems with every news article I read about the party’s vision, I feel more vindicated.
That's exactly the problem with Rove & Co.
Maybe Karl Rove Has a Point...yeah, on his head.
Maybe Karl Rove Has a Point
Yeah, check the top of his head!
“Human Events” is a RINO/GOP-e SUCK A$$ RAG!
Well good for you. Thank goodness Reagan didn’t “leave the R’s” and instead BECAME the R’s - but good for you that you “left the R’s.”
By the way, does this make you immune “to the D’s.”
didn’t think so. Hows that workin for ya.
I believe in the Constitution as it was written by our Founding Fathers.
I am a Christian who believes Our Nation was founded by Christian men who warned future generations that failure to abide by Christian teachings would be our downfall.
If that makes me a fanatic, so be it.
“Maybe Karl Rove Has a Point...yeah, on his head.”
Haha “Pointy-headed intellectuals who couldn’t park a bicycle straight” - George Wallace
“Lets put ideology aside for a moment”, couldn’t EVEN get it right from the first sentence.
I'm sick of socialists, progressives and liberals destroying the country and the constitution.
I am sick of women killing their babies at the altar of 'Choice'
I am sick of RINOs who are little different from the socialists, progressives and liberals destroying the country
We need strong conservatives to take back our party and the country.
I’m proudly becoming more extreme by the day.
To see one look in a mirror Karl.
We, as conservatives, have let ideology cloud our judgement a bit here and there.
Don't get me wrong, we need rock solid true conservatives, but we do also need to make sure they are not amateur gynecologists or part time witches.
The author's point is solid. However, Rove's solution of looking for media savvy ideologically milquetoast pretty boys is capitulation.
All the media has to do is omit or take a word or two out of context, or ignore context, and presto - the 'wacko' narrative.
No, if the GOP wishes to begin win more elections they're going to have to fight, persuade, lead. There is no substitute.
BFD. He turned what should have been two run away wins into an extra inning affair and a late inning come back.
And thanks to the "New Tone" crap helped usher in what will be at least an eight year march to the destruction of this Republic.
Rove put his stamp of approval on the doddering Tommy Thompson, helping him defeat Eric Hovde in the primary. Hovde would have made mincemeat of Baldwin, but he was determined to be "too risky and unproven".
