To vice, innocence must always seem only a superior kind of chicanery.
Ouida (1839–1908), novelist
When I saw the report about the vile, fascist comments from Turd Blossom, my initial reaction was to point out the utter nonsense of his remarks (Turd Blossom is President Bush’s pet name, aptly so, for Karl Rove), but this is a magnificent smoke screen to further divide the political parties in order to rally their majority in Congress to get the votes for:
- John Bolton as the ambassador to the UN,
- The Supreme Court Nominee, and
- Finally for Social Security.
TB’s comments should be roundly exposed for what they are a decoy for more insidious plans. From the New York Times, here is the nonsense from Turd Blossom:
"Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers," Mr. Rove, the senior political adviser to President Bush, said at a fund-raiser in Midtown for the Conservative Party of New York State.
