Yeah, Karl, We Certainly Know The Type

Obama is "coolly arrogant"?

At a breakfast with "Republican insiders" Monday morning, ABC News reports, Rove said of Obama: "Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette, that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."
Yes, Karl, and you watched, didn't you ... You stared ...

And it burned you, didn't it.

Maybe, helping them with their homework, their tests, only to see them lip-locked with Joe Jock after school.

Or going to your prom, stag, sitting at the geek table, with all the other little dateless geeks.

But now, years later, your at the club, watching "him" ... Again ...

Being the doughy, spectacled geek, living in someone else's shadow, downing shots of hard liquor, bitterly making cutting, angry comments, from the other side of the room, at the family's legacy table, your perch, on everyone else in the room - especially the Muffys and the Biffs - smug in self-praise, that your bile musings are the vindication that you won, you came out on top, not them, so take that all you cheerleaders, all you football heroes ...

Even Margaret Spellings thought he was a bowser;
Spellings paused, then said: "Have you met Karl Rove?

"He was so inept and so inartful," she added. "I mean, I couldn't even understand."
Hmmm ... Not exactly martini-and-beautiful-date suave, I would say.

Well, there's always the solid gold cock ring to fall back on ...

Bonus Rove
