Rove Jokes About Killing Todd Akin

by lizard

Those in power must think killing people is hilarious. Why else would they joke about it?

Obama did it back in 2010 when he joked about blowing up the Jonas Brothers with a drone strike if they tried to have relations with his daughters. The venue was nerd prom the correspondents dinner; a good place for the president to show how comfortable he is with the power he wields, slaughtering innocent civilians from the sky by remote control.

Good times.

If you enjoyed Obama’s joking remarks about murder, then you’ll love the remarks Karl Rove recently made at a billionaire fundraiser.

The report about Rove’s remarks comes from Sheelah Kolhatkar, writing for Business Week. Here is how she opens her piece, including a hilarious joke about killing Todd Akin:

On the final morning of the Republican National Convention, Karl Rove took the stage at the Tampa Club to provide an exclusive breakfast briefing to about 70 of the Republican Party’s highest-earning and most powerful donors. During the more than hour-long session, Rove explained to an audience dotted with hedge fund billionaires and investors—including John Paulson and Wilbur Ross—how his super PAC, American Crossroads, will persuade undecided voters in crucial swing states to vote against Barack Obama. He also detailed plans for Senate and House races, and joked, “We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!”

Isn’t politics in America fun? Hell yeah it is. Just watch the joy Hillary Clinton experiences upon news of Gaddafi getting executed.

I am so excited for the Democratic Convention, I feel like drowning a bag of squirming kittens.

Good times indeed.

    The comment about drowning kittens reminded me of Joe Bageant and his description of the meanness of our people. He called it “revenge of the mutt people.” Extremely politically incorrect, but one thing about Joe, he really had a way with words! http://www.joebageant.com/joe/2006/01/revenge_of_the_.html He describes the conditioning we received to kill “gooks and sand monkeys” (kind of reminds me of old Conrad Burns!) He also talks about the “implications of the so-called American Dream.” And being trained as a child to have a capacity for cruelty. Starting with kittens and going on from there to a pit bull analogy. Later that year, Sarah Palin was elected gov. of Alaska. The Democratic convention will be good times indeed, as you say, and Joe left just in time. But not before “One Last Kick at the Liberal Dog.” http://coldtype.net/Assets.05/Essays/06.Joe.LastKick.pdf

      thank you for the Bageant links, cosmicgarden. his voice is missed by many.

      personally, I think the base-capacity for viciousness all humans to some degree are capable of is what makes American Exceptionalism so maddening.

      we are not the moral arbitrators of the world.
