A Letter to Karl Rove
I must admit Karl, that upon learning of your recent escape from criminal prosecution, I was somewhat disappointed. I had dreams of you dressed in prison orange and spending quality time with a roommate named Bubba.
I know in the past, we have had our differences. I regret now, my comparison of you to Dr. Joseph Goebbels. It was quite unfair to make a comparison between a PhD holding German scholar and you. Although you do share his great talent for ruthlessness, your ability to sustain a propaganda program is somewhat lacking.
You seem to have forgotten what Goebbels wrote about the truth. As you may recall, he clearly stated that; “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State.”
It just seems unbelievable to me that you could plan and execute a marvelous propaganda program, without realizing that the simple distribution of the truth would precipitate you and your parties ultimate undoing. Some in our camp fear you and rightly so. Your type of ball busting, take no prisoners politics is ruthless and without compromise.
I know many of your friends are breathing a sigh of relief. They are happy you are back to do battle in the upcoming elections. I am happy as well. You have led the hijacking of the Republican Party. It only seems right that you, the architect, will be in your creation at the time of its collapse.
Yes Karl, I am glad you are back where you belong. Do what you do best and you will send the Republican Party into the oblivion it so richly deserves.
