Shameless McCain’s campaign utterly embraces Karl Rove

October 16, 2008 | By | 1 Reply More

Rolling Stone’s Matt Tabbi is back with another clinic on writing.   This time, his subject is Karl Rove and all things Rovian.   The title to the article is “The Return of Rove:  John McCain has Surrendered His Campaign to the Same Political Fearmonger Who Smeared Him Out of the Race in 2000.

Here’s the money paragraph:

The reason Rove continues to survive is the same reason that Johnnie Cochran was called a genius for keeping a double-murderer on the golf course — because this generation of Americans has become so steeped in greed and social Darwinism that it can no longer distinguish between cheating and achieving, between enterprise and crime, and can’t bring itself to criticize winners any more than it knows how to be nice to losers. He survives because an increasing number of Americans secretly agree with Rove’s vision of rules, laws and “the truth” as quaint, faintly embarrassing rituals that only a sucker would let hold him back.
