Birthing the truth

As I've long suspected, "Bush's Brain" really does possess a brain. Last night, ex-Bush adviser Karl Rove let slip an inconvenient political truth. He told Fox News that "within our party, we’ve got to be very careful about allowing these people who are the birthers and the 9/11-deniers to get too high a profile and say too much without setting the record straight.” Rove also suggested GOP leaders are naively falling into a White House trap by getting knocked off message. "Look, these guys may be lousy at governing ... but they’re damn good at politics." Unfortunately for Rove, his fellow Republicans remain lousy at both, and seem quite content to ride the birther bandwagon right over the cliff.
