This part pretty much sums up the entire satire:
Rove: He’s right, you know. George is mad and all, but he would never have enjoyed the privilege of tarnishing the executive office if we were nice guys. Hell, my whole career is predicated on my special talent for shameless, craven smear tactics. What the hell are we doing here, anyway?
Rove is such an easily caricatured individual anyhow. If you had to define evil incarnate he’d be the gold standard. I find it hard to believe that his smear tactics have been so succesful when even someone with a quality 8th grade education can smell the bullshit from a mile away.
But then The Beast seems to be able to smell the bovine effluvia that flows from the likes of Pat Robertson, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, Condoleeza Rice et al.
In the case of Rice, Keyron and I were talking about her today. He thinks she’s the token black of the White House. I told him that there aren’t many token blacks that had oil tankers named after them.
Anyhow, I’ll echo an oft posted dream – that the Democrats can actually mount a campaign in 2006, take at least one house of congress and make their most important duty the impeachment of Bush. Lets face it, it’s beginning to look more and more like Cheney is going to jail. Taking out Bush would just be too easy.
