Karl Rove

You know a social networking trend has gone too far when: (1) Karl Rove has caught on, and (2) Karl Rove attempts to “friend” you—or, in Meghan McCain’s unenviable case, follow you on Twitter. Ew.

The Daily Beast:

Karl Rove follows me on Twitter. That’s creepy. I joined Twitter a few months ago; so far, it has been a liberating way to transition from political to personal blogging. It’s allowed me to share the less-serious aspects and humorously uncensored moments of my life. But there’s also been a downside: I am now being followed by Karl Rove, and my local sheriff, and God knows how many other political pundits. We need to take Twitter back from the creepy people.

Remember when Republican/corporate operatives in anti-terrorism/intell were focusing their efforts on President Clinton’s legal/hetero sexlife?

Every day that whole scam gets creepier & creepier.

And…boy were those creeps ever held accountable for ignoring all the intell & warnings that TERRORISTS were planning to attack eight months before 9/11.

Now Americans are learning about “creepy” torture….the euphemisms & tortured language of the corporate media. Notice how they are troting out the GOP talking pts on Gay marriage & abortion AGAIN?  But….torture, domestic spying, looting the American financial system….. no that be oh too much… they prefer to babble about TWITTERING.
Witness the smokescreen of corporate deception…..they want to gorge on the reminants of the American economy one more time….. and the election money to run the phony ads in the next election.

Add guess who the GOP brain will be: Karl the Creep…imagine his sexual desires…..puke bags anyone?

Cyber Stalker, trying to figure out your next move- literally & politically.
The Neo Cons are such sociopaths, unable to formulate a doctrine that doesn’t repulse the voters they will do anything to figure out their own next move.
Hats off to Meagan in her straight forward assessment that Repugs are ‘Scared Shitless’. Most likely it has to do with their underlying religious philopshy guiding their political platform.
Let’s be honest the Repugs have proven by their lack of plans that they think the ‘End’ is near.
global Warming - Do Nothing
Economic Catastrophe - do nothing
But a potential for a military conflict- throw the entire arcenal at it.
this i sthe result of 30 yrs of the Fanatical Religious Right evangelical movement controlling the Republican party. They are schizophrenic as to their feelings about the ‘End of Days’- terrified by every ‘sign’ they ‘see’, yet at the same time titalated by it. In fact they have gotten themselves into such a fervor- they are trying any way possible to facilitate it. Yet turn around and blame social Liberals for the ‘impending Judgement’.
The Reason the Repugs are in such a philosphical pretzel is because they have based their platform on the the twisted theology of the ‘Armegeddonists’.
What the Repugs are finding out is that the younger generation actually does not buy into nor intend to work towards ‘end of days’. and when those New Republicans gather momentum, the Neo cons sociopathic destructive platform will be exposed. Young Republicans not only See a Future, they Want a future- unlike their “old” counterparts.

Yes Rove is creepy and DANGEROUS.  You must remember that he has been building a power base inside the Republician party since he was caught “dirty tricking” in the ‘72’ election. His power allowed him to OUT a serving CIA officer with impunity, have trumped up charges acted upon by ‘loyal Bushies’ to imprison a Governer, reveal classified intelligence to lobbiest for political reasons and other questionable antions. YES be very,very afraid of Carl Rove

How could anyone not be creeped out being stalked by “THE TURD”.  Without a doubt Rove is one slimy little piece of crap!

He went after your sister to trash your father back in 2000.  You are wise to be creeped-out.  At least 65 million Democrats are creeped-out by him, too.  And I’ll bet a plurality, if not a majority of your fellow Republicans are just as creeped-out by rove.  He reminds me too much of the sadist nazi with the burned hand in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”.
