What the fuck is Karl smoking?

Welcome to Karl’s Kloud Kuckoo Land:

Presidential adviser Karl Rove blamed the war in Iraq on Monday for dragging down President Bush's job approval ratings in public opinion polls. "People like this president," Rove said. "They're just sour right now on the war."
The president has so inextricably associated himself with this war, it’s impossible to think of one without the other. That’s the risk one takes when one rides into a second term on a wave of “I’m the security president! I’m a war president! My legacy will be to democratize the Middle East!” Let’s not pretend that the American people are confusing their waning support for the war with their impressions of the president. The president himself (under Turd Blossom’s carefully orchestrated direction) made his presidency exclusively about the war—to an unprecedented exclusion of domestic policy, aside from the occasional focus on kissing boys or girls who have the temerity to want bodily autonomy. Get real. The president is the war, and the war is the president.

And both of them are an unmitigated disaster.
