Clash of the Titans: Karl Rove vs. the Tea Party

Rightwing billionaire vs. rightwing billionaire — gotta love it.  The next few elections will probably have even more campaign spending and more smearing than the 2012 mudfest.  And most of it will be Republicans slandering and shitting on each other.  Works for me.

Karl Rove’s American Crossroads has launched a new PAC called the Conservative Victory Project.  American Crossroads president Steven Law will be running the Conservative Victory Project.

The purpose of the Conservative Victory Project is to squelch the teatard candidates who keep winning the primary and then losing the general election.  You know — Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin, Richard “Rape is God’s Will” Mourdock, Christine “I am Not a Witch” O’Donnell, etc.

Conservative Victory Project’s first hit might be Rep. Steve King (R—Animal Torturer), who’s been in the House for eons and is considering a run for the Senate.

Needless to say, the Far Right is not happy about this.  Just two examples are the Club for Growth and the Senate Conservatives Fund, which was founded by Jim DeMint.  And that tells you everything you need to know about the Senate Conservatives Fund.

A spokesman for Senate Conservatives Fund said:

“Rather than listening to the grassroots and working to advance their principles, the establishment has chosen to declare war on the party's most loyal supporters.”

And the Tea Party Patriots’ national coordinator tweeted:

“TPPatriots want to save USA. Karl Rove wants to line pockets—Don't Tread on Us! Tea Party bites back—never gives up!”

Things have gotten curiouser and curiouser when Karl Rove is the voice of moderation.

Interesting times ahead.

Good! I want those crazy people to turn on each other and eliminate themselves. That way rational, normal people can continue the business of solving real problems in this country.

Don't you just love watching the rethuglicon party eat its' own?

It's not the message or the brand boys it's the ideology! Welcome to the "stupid" party.

When I saw this I wondered if this was an attempt to bring back the extinct Moderates they hunted down and killed years ago knowing they may (gasp) work with Democrats?

If the Moderates had true backing and didn't have to kiss the far rights ass, Barbara Boxer would have been beaten twice to two Moderates.

I also would like to know what line they draw from true Conservatives to Nutcases which I can't tell, can anyone else here tell?

Oh yeah I also forgot to say:

I love watching Billionaires fight (and Soros has nothing to do with it) Maybe us ordinary folks can stand under them and hope some spare change falls on us

Life: Yup, I love it. The Far Right vs. the not-quite-as-Far Right -- hope they obliterate each other.

Demeur: They're eating their own; I hope there aren't any survivors.

Jim: My sentiments exactly.

Erik: I'm always happy when a Far Right wingtard wins the nomination and then loses the election. But then sometimes these teatards actually do get elected.

Yup, who knows, maybe "trickle down" would actually work, for the one and only time.
