Karl Rove coming to town

March 22, 2010

It must be a Republican dream come true — Karl Rove, popularly referred to as “Bush’s Brain,” is coming to town Saturday, March 27.

The political consultant, strategist, pundit, and author–the man credited with getting George W. Bush into the Win column in four straight elections–is speaking at the Madonna Inn Saturday night to promote his new book, “Courage and Consequence.”

Tickets are $100 per person and includes a copy of Rove’s book. For $1,500 per couple, you get a signed copy of the book and a photo with Rove. Throw in another $1,000, and you get all this, plus the chance to sit at the same table as Rove and host Cong. Kevin McCarthy.

Details for the fundraiser are available through the Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County.

    you guys are so silly.

    ‘Evil’ is such a harsh word to use for someone who’s biggest claim is keeping the king of global warming ( or climate change) out of office.

    No, I won’t be spending the money to see Mr. Rove in action… but you all would be more convincing if you mixed a little logic with your venom.

    Booty is absolutely correct. There will be a group protesting this creep at the Inn on Saturday starting at 4:45 PM.

    Set aside the idiotic matter of specific political parties. It is denied by nobody that Bush, Rove et al took us into war on false pretenses and destroyed the American economy, leaving us now broken, unemployed, and dry heaving in a frozen ditch.

    We can only pray that he and his kind die of rectal cancer, vomiting their own blood into a used milk container.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 20 Thumb down 17

    It’s well known Rove has stooped to the lowest levels of political intrigue in, without moral bounds, creating and enhancing the ghastly ‘little shrub’ years that have nearly brought this country to it’s knees, Internationally and domestically. I think ‘infamous’ is appropriate in this case.

    Infamous:
    1 : having a reputation of the worst kind : notoriously evil
    2 : causing or bringing infamy : disgraceful
    3 : convicted of an offense bringing infamy

    Hitler and Manson are infamous. Not so Mr. Rove.

    Your use of this word and your chosen photograph of Mr. Rove make it real clear where you stand. Doing so has caused me to question your journalistic integrity.

        Can you substantiate your accusation? C’mon, give me some specifics instead of resorting to name calling.

          Ambassador Plame’s wife, torture, US attorneys in the SW, Islamic Brotherhood Islamic Institute ties with Grover Norquest ; this guy is involved in some dark neo conservative dominionist dream.
          “All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”
