Rove Pokes A Hole In Sarah’s Balloon
You may love him or hate him; regardless, Karl Rove is a man with high intellect when political gamesmanship is concerned. You may or may not like his tactics, but he gets the job done. It was not for nothing that he was called Bush’s brain, and he was largely responsible for making George W. Bush a very successful President.
In an interview with London’s Daily Telegraph, Rove said that the Tea Party queen Sarah Palin lacks the “gravitas” to be president. Specifically he mentioned Palin’s upcoming reality TV show which is not really a prep stage for running for the White House.
“There are high standards that the American people have” for the presidency, Rove interjected. “They require a certain level of gravitas. … They want to look at the candidate and say, ‘That candidate is doing things that [give] me confidence that they are up to the most demanding job in the world.’”
If Rove thinks Palin is not presidential material, why is there such hype in the media over her? The answer is really very simple: if Palin becomes president, it would be a dream come true for the people who control corporate media, for then they would be the real drivers hiding in dark shadows.
Never before has a candidate with so few credentials as Sarah Palin conquered the national stage with such fanfare! Now it would be interesting to see what happens to Sarah’s balloon, once a hole is poked in it by no less a personality than the master conservative strategist, Karl Rove.
