Karl Rove Gets Much Deserved Recognition

Yesterday  Daily Kos  (  surveyed its readers on an important political matter as sort of a follow-up to the election.  The question that Daily Kos posed was this:  Which of the following individuals is the biggest horse's ass in America?   The nominees were:  Karl Rove, Sheldon Adelson, Sean Hannity, the Koch Brothers,  Mitch McConnell, Dick Morris, the National Organization of Marriage (NOM), Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh,  Jennifer Rubin, and Bill O'Reilly.

My first reaction was where are Allen West and Joe Arpaio?  But upon careful examination of the list I noted that there were no candidates for any 2012 office listed on the ballot.  I guess if they had included  the recent office-seekers, there would have been so many additional names that the list would have become too lengthy and completely unwieldy!

So who were the big winners?  Last night with nearly 12,000 votes cast, Karl "turd bird" Rove was the runaway winner with 46% of the total.    Donald Trump easily took second place with 20% of the vote.  The only other person in double digits was Dick Morris with eleven percent.   The next three places went to Sheldon Adelson (who got my vote) with 6%,  the Koch Brothers at 5%, and Mitch McConnell with three  percent.  Rush Limbaugh was seventh with 2%, and the National Organization for Marriage drew one percent.  The other three (Rubin, Hannity, and O'Reilly) each received a handful of votes - in that order.

Apparently Rove also drew some negative comments from America's wealthiest one percent when they sobered up and realized the millions of dollars that they had lavished on Rove and his Crossroads organization actually bought nothing!   And while the obscenely rich might enjoy screwing the poor, they themselves do not like to have their pockets picked.

Congratulations, Karl.  You are, on your very best day, a colossal horse's ass.  Not only do real people (like those who read Daily Kos) think so, America's millionaires and billionaires seem to be also coming to the same conclusion.    Thank goodness both ends of our economic spectrum can still agree on something!
