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.
