Right, Karl, and the Palins are having you over for moose chili on Thursday.
Rove and his posse locked arms with the Times and the rest of the left wing media in trashing Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann; he joined the dog pile on Christine O’Donnell in 2010 assuring the GOP would not regain the Senate, and then pulled funding this year on Todd Akin in a race he was winning against Claire McCaskill for making one stupid comment.
