I have to say, watching Karl Rove LOSE HIS MOTHERFUCKING MIND ON FOX NEWS has been just one of the many small, schadenfreudic pleasures of the past couple of days. Him squirming and stammering that something was obviously amiss in the poll numbers coming out of Ohio, i.e., THE SKETCHY ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINE SOFTWARE THEY INSTALLED and RACIST/CLASSIST VOTER-DISENFRANCHISEMENT EFFORTS WEREN’T WORKING.
As I smirked and watched his mouth move and his butthole pucker…all I could think about was that scene in “The Sting”, where the BRILLIANT Robert Shaw stormed back to his compartment on the train, bellowing to his henchman that even despite his best poker cheating/deck stacking efforts, he STILL lost a brace of simolians to an also cheating Paul Newman. You just fucking KNOW that this is exactly what Rove was thinking — BUT HE COULDN’T SAY IT OUT LOUD:
Doyle Lonnegan: “What was I supposed to do — call him for cheating better than me, in front of the others?”
DEAD FUCKING ON.
