Karl Rove, Boy Genius

| | Comments (0)
Here's the story: shoot your friend in the face, and thereby keep the latest Abu Ghraib pictures out of the news, and make the press look like completely out-of-touch buffoons in the process.

Who but Karl Rove could have devised such a plan?

Best quote of the last week: The press corps that noisily champions "the public's right to know" about a minor hunting accident simultaneously assures the public that they've no need to see these Danish cartoons that have caused riots, arson and death around the world.

Second best quote of the week (from the same article), in reference to NBC's David Gregory comparing the delay in Cheney notifying the press to the delay in Ted Kennedy notifying authorityies: Hmm. Let's see. On the one hand, the guy leaves the gal at the bottom of the river struggling for breath pressed up against the window in some small air pocket while he pulls himself out of the briny, staggers home, sleeps it off and saunters in to inform the cops the following day that, oh yeah, there was some broad down there. And, on the other hand, the guy calls 911, has the other fellow taken to the hospital, lets the sheriff know promptly but neglects to fax David Gregory's make-up girl!

Karl Rove, you are a genius. slashdot.org
