But for goodness' sake, as Abramowitz was smart enough to demonstrate, people who live in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and Manhattan should understand that in much of red America, Rove is beloved and respected, and they should ask themselves why that is
Half the time, the pundit class nitwits think we are all a bunch of ass-scratching, tobacco chewing, banjo picking, Ned Beatty ass raping inbreds . The other half of the time they see us as bunch of doe eyed cows that get herded too and fro by the electric prods of Machiavellian direct mail wizards.
Here's what Karl Rove gets that you don't Mark. Most people out here don't even know who Karl Rove is and even less know Mark Halperin. We save the "beloved" and the "respected" for our mothers and fathers. What we do know is when we are being talked down to by a bunch of snot nosed, shoe gazing jack asses. That's why people like you keep failing to understand why your side doesn't win effing elections.
