Karl Rove - Dysfunctional As Ever

Ever have one of those lovers who withholds sex from you when you get in a fight. I don't mean like for just one night when the fight is actually going on, but for weeks and weeks to punish you for, I don't know.... coming home late, just after sunset, from comforting a friend going through a rough time, or maybe making the wrong snack for your Super Bowl party?

It's a very dysfunctional way to behave in a relationship, and it's also a very dysfunctional way to run a government.

Deputy Chief of Staff, Traitor and #1 White House Thug Karl Rove has been threatening to blacklist any Republicans in the Judiary Committee that vote against President Bush. He's threatening to withhold any White House political or financial support from them should they stray from the fold and actually think for themselves and make a decision that best benefits the country and their constituency.

But this could really backfire on our Rovey, just like it could backfire on your dysfunctional lover. You might decide to go elsewhere to get the things you're not getting from the relationship, or you might end up replacing the dysfunctional lover with one who isn't as needy and neurotic and paranoid.

If Rove withholds support from these candidates and they lose their re-election campaigns, then Democrats might take back their seats in the Senate and it will certainly be easier to instigate impeachment hearings. Has Karl Rove thought about this, or is he just on a short-sighted mean streak?

Karl Rove is nothing more than a co-dependent boyfriend that insists you give up all your friends, stop sailing and move to Gods Waiting Room, FL.

    I'm not sure any Republicans will WANT to have a photo-op with Bush if his poll numbers stay down in the 30's. You'd think they'd get tired of that bastard's bullying, wouldn't you? BTW: is there really a 'God's Waiting Room, FL'? I assume you're talking about the whole state, but it sure would be nice to think there was a trailer park down there actually named 'God's Waiting Room'.

    I was refering to Clearwater. A significant portion of the city is a trailer park, I believe.

    I lived for a few brief months right at the busiest intersection of the city across from a Perkins. But those days were long ago and far away. And I think we're all in a much better place now.

    BTW Neil, I haven't been able to figure out if you're from Missouri or Kansas, but lately I've been reading and commenting on the Wichita Eagle-related blog,, that I think you might enjoy. There's quite a cast of characters over there of all politcal pursuasions and IQ levels.

    I think the Florida Tourism Council prefers "The Sunshine State" to "God's Waiting Room"...or was that the name of the place where the old coots in "Cocoon" lived, died, and then came back to life only to be whisked away to an alien planet, where they were most likely eaten?

    And have they aliens brought Steve Guttenberg back yet? No hurry, I'm just askin'...

    Ya know, I haven't seen Steve Guttenberg in any movies recently. Should we be worried?

    Maybe instead of going to the moon or Mars, we should focus our Space Exploration/PR Campaigns on finding him
