Lark over

Is there anything Karl Rove isn’t a fathead about? Referring to Barry Hussein Obama Rove said, "Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

But Obama isn’t that guy at all. He’s the guy in the center of the room, schmoozing and trying to impress the ‘important’ people with his cleanliness and his articulate earnest idealism. Also the guys who make the snide remarks prefer brown liquor, and we don’t stand against the wall, we stand by the bar.


  1. Well, as with so many other things, Rove may actually know that and is really just trying to make people think Obama is the first guy, since he thinks they’ll find that guy more offputting. Plus, in being the second guy, Obama isn’t that different (externalities like the cute date aside) from Rove himself or any guy Rove has ever pushed for.

    My ideal situation is to stand against a wall that is by the bar.

  2. Doesn't the fact that Obama is married to Michelle sort of put the kibosh on any notion that he's the guy in the country club with the hot date? Or perhaps he got all of that dating hotties business out of the way during his country club days, thus allowing him to disregard looks when choosing to marry Michelle for her effervescent personality.

  3. Barry's wife is not particularly attractive....
