Fags and Flags

Marrying Fags are Burning Flags and Eating Aborted Fetuses.

Who are you going to vote for?

Am I seeing the hand of Karl Rove in Bush's latest support for the ban on same-sex marriage constitutional amendment?

Sure, all the pundits say the amendment hasn't got a chance passage in the Senate, but that's not the point. It's the mid-term election, stupid!

Make the anti-gay amendment an issue in state campaigns. Get their base to the polls. Tell them to elect senators that say they will vote favorably the amendment next time it comes up. It's not whether it will ever come to past, it's getting their people elected and maintaining the majority that is important to the Bushies.

The same is true with the flag burning amendment. A law will not do because of that liberally inspired First Amendment right – it will have to be an amendment. Again, it's not the passage of the actual amendment; it's the thought that counts.

Candidates in key states support the "anti's" – anti-gay, anti-flag burning, anti-abortion – and get their base to the polls is the strategy. At least that's what I think it is.

As much as I disapprove of the Bush administration I have to admit Karl Rove is a political Machiavelli the likes of which I have never seen before.

I am looking for his not so visible work in the up coming election. One thing he does is appeal to the conservative Christian base – the fags and flags issues. If what I'm saying is true, abortion should come up some how some way before November gets here.

Another of his infamous strategies is to attack where you least expect him to: the opposition candidate's greatest strength. Attacking Max Cleland on patriotism in the last election is a prime example of this tactic. A disabled vet bound to a wheelchair because of injuries while in the service and Rove goes after him for being soft on defense. I would not have believed it if I had not seen it.

If I was running for senator or representative as a Democrat, I would (of course) know my political strengths. But I wouldn't take them for granted. That's where the attack will come – and importantly – it may not come until just before the election when it is too late to react.

You may not see Rove's strategy until it's too late. Like the push-poll that attacked John McCain in South Carolina.

Also, look for an exposé that will later turn out to be bogus – especially an attack in the local MSM on Rove's candidate that will be proven false. Where ever did those bogus memos on Bush's National Guard service come from? While the memos were false, what they said was not, but that got lost in the feeding frenzy on CBS and Dan Rather. After that, Bush's National Guard service (or lack there of) was safely insulated from further attack. If that's not Roveian, I don't know what is.

This November may be the most important election to the Bush administration, ever. While 2000 and 2004 were just to get elected, this one will determine if there will be investigations and testimony before committees. That will not look good even on Fox News.

They must win. Democrats cannot be allowed to get the majority in either house of Congress. All the tricks need to come out of the bag. Nothing is more important.

Watch and see.

If I was a Democratic candidate in a key state, I'd feel like Sarah Connor being chased by the Rovenator.
