Quote of the Day

Karl Rove:

The Internet for the Left of the Democratic Party has served as a way to mobilize hate and anger -- hate and anger, first and foremost, at this President and Conservatives, but then also at people within their own party whom they consider to be less than completely loyal to this very narrow, very out-of-the-mainstream, very far Left-wing ideology that they tend to represent.
The article does not note whether he said this with a straight face.

The Dems represent a “very far Left-wing ideology”? Seriously, when will this lie die? It’s laughable. Their presumed nominee, Hillary Clinton, is hawkish on the war, supports a flag-burning amendment, and doesn’t support gay equality. Get real.

And who comprises “The Internet for the Left of the Democratic Party”? Kos? Pandagon? Shakespeare’s Sister? Does anyone who listens to this drivel really think every lefty blogger is a Democrat? Might those who criticize centrist Dems perhaps not actually be Dems at all? Duh.

As for the anger, well, some of us have a lot to be angry about these days. I’m not about to apologize for it.
