Mr. Rove's dirty little fingerprints

Where is Rove? Is he secretly pulling the strings behind McCain's campaign?

Close observers of John McCain's behavior might have noticed some changes in his demeanor recently: his outpouring of humor and his self-deprecating so what if I like Abba, I don't like all that popular music like Mr. Celebrity over there, manner.

Recall what Mr. Rove is good at: personality molding. Remember that he took a wealthy, Connecticut-born son of a former president and turned him into a "texas cowboy." Recall the debates in which we all thought John Kerry kicked George Bush's butt, and recall how georgie boy just shrugged and smirked his way thought the entire thing: almost belittling the process. The funny alpha male.

And now John McCain answers questions about the Iraq surplus, by changing the subject to his bad taste in music. Sound familiar?

They say Rove is "out the the country," - hiding from his subpoena? Why isn't that front-page news, BTW?

We know that Karl Rove admits he works "informally" for the McCain campaign. We are beginning to see the telltale signs of his hand at work: questioning Barack's patriotism, blind accusations about how "far left" liberals are out to destroy your way of life.

Yep, it seems like Karl Rove is back behind the scenes, coaching McCain on his demeanor, giving him some jokes... and telling him to indulge the vicious whisper campaigns by people like Jerome Corsi, and his new book, which CNN says "included several documented falshoods":
Asked by the Associated Press earlier Friday what he though of author Jerome Corsi's new book, "The Obama Nation," McCain said, "gotta keep your sense of humor."
Later on, McCain's campaign claimed the old man "didn't hear" the question, which makes me think "Then why did he answer, and what did he think he was talking about?"

Now, the McCain campaign says they have "no comment" on the book.
The symmetry to the Bush campaign is all too familiar, but I will give all that I am able to help Democrats open up a can of whoop-ass on Karle Rove, the RNC and John McCain.

Where oh where, are you Karl - come out, come out, wherever you are!
