    What does my opinion about Karl Rove have to do with a clever campaign ad? If Karl Rove does something smart, I praise it. If he does something dumb, I criticize it.

    Have you even taken a course in logic?

      Rand,

      So you are not throwing him under the bus yet because he has come out against the Tea Party? That is good to know.

        Did you not read what I wrote, or did you have trouble understanding it? I don’t know what “Throwing Karl Rove under the bus” means. Particularly in the context of this post.

        Both of your comments has been non sequiturs so far. Want to try again?

          You’re arguing with a man who feels voting for a 100%-opposition guy like Reid is logical because the other choice might make 10% of her choices erroneously. Over logic.

            Al,

            When there are no Republicans running its best to vote for the major party candidate, especially when the have a good
            rating by the NRA.

            and FYI

            [[[Reid told ABC on Sunday that he backed expanding background checks to private gun sales at shows and other steps, but he refused to endorse a ban on what are called assault-style rifles modeled after military weapons.]]]

            Remember, President Obama isn’t going to do much about banning guns without Senator Reid’s help…

            Of course if gun rights aren’t important to you…

    I think my housemate saw that ad or something almost exactly like it on local (KY) TV last night. He said he cracked up over it.

    Just a day or two ago it was announced that her marriage to Mario Franchitti (sp?) was at an end. He probably got sick of her trying to hog the spotlight whenever he won a race.

    On the bright side, this means Mitch McConnel won’t have to spend hardly anything this time around. Heck, the UMWA will be running ads against her.

      She began her career as a Star Fleet engineer dating Wesley Crusher. Maybe she’ll go back to him.

    OK, I’ll start off by saying I grew up in Kentucky, I have plenty of family over there still and visit periodically. And I just don’t see a ton of people, even many (D)s voting for her as a Senator. KY is not a place were ‘radical’ is a word people want to here when talking politics, again, EVEN the (D)s.

    And I can’t find anything that says you can run for Federal Office from KY, after you’re gone from the state for 23 years, with your primary residence, by your own admittance, being in Tennessee. Typical (D) in my mind, she thinks she can do whatever she wants, because she wants it done that way!

    Karl Rove, political capon:

    “Rove, through his two political outfits, American Crossroads and Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, backed unsuccessful Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney with $127 million on more than 82,000 television spots, according to Kantar Media’s CMAG, an ad tracker based in New York.”

    One ad isn’t evidence of a competent campaign strategist, just as one won battle isn’t enough evidence of the acumen for winning a war.
