The Widdershins

Bush’s Brain diagnoses…

Posted on: May 13, 2014

Good afternoon Widdershins.  I’m sorry to be so late in posting today, but real life has again gotten between my fingers and the computer keyboard.  Please forgive my tardiness.

Rove "Glamour Shot" on the right...

Rove “Glamour Shot” on the right…

Originally, I was going to write about the newly overused word “scandal.”  It’s everywhere these days.  Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious — scandal, scandal, scandal.  Almost like Jan Brady was writing the script for the RNC and all she did was replace “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha” with scandal.

Tea Pot Dome was a scandal.  Watergate was a scandal.  Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was a scandal unearthed courtesy of a $70.0 Million Dollar governmental colonoscopy, but a scandal nonetheless.  Benghazi, the IRS, and Fast and Furious come nowhere near scandals, but they serve as subject matter magnets to drain the wallets of the hyper-ventilating base of the Right.  Personally, I don’t believe the facts matter a whit any more — it is the sowing of the seeds of the unknown conspiracy that really feeds the monster.  Black helicopters come in all types and sizes these days.

There is no possible example of the sinister aspect of this cable news scandal frenzy better than the latest transgression of “Bush’s Brain” Karl Rove.  This gelatinous, amoral, soulless insinuator has proved once again there is no level to which he will not slither in the furtherance of his disservice to the country.

Late last week, Rove implied Hillary Clinton is brain damaged.  From Media Matters:

Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”

Rove repeated the claim a number of times to the audience.

Of course, facts never get in the way of “ham headed” Rove.  The truth is:  Hillary was hospitalized for four days and the glasses were to help with double vision occurring after her concussion — all explained during numerous interviews contemporaneous with the event.

Rove, chastened by the criticism, is now back-peddling claiming he never implied Hillary Clinton is “brain damaged.”  That my friends is a twofer in terms of political spin — make the innocuous outrageous charge, then make the rounds denying making the charge all the while fertilizing the original outrageous claim.

Bush and Rove

This scurrilous piece of Rove excrement is now firmly embedded in the echo chamber of the Right via Fox, Glenn Beck, Drudge, WorldNet and every other piece of filthy newsprint not yet lining birdcages across the land.

For a man who engineered lying us into a war, who sent our soldiers into war without proper equipment, who played a pivotal role in killing somewhere between 600,000 and a million Iraqis, this latest Hillary Clinton smear is nothing more than an evil afterthought.  Ham head didn’t even break a sweat on this one.

It is somewhat contemptible former President Bush is doing refrigerator art in Texas while his “Brain” is turned loose and is sowing seeds of malicious lies in order to line his pockets with the detritus of Billionaires.  Perhaps it is time for a reunion of Bush with his Brain — may they paint happily ever after.

This is an open thread.

i saw that this (sleepless) morning on Morning Schmoe. Even Dubya apologizer Nicolle Wallace said this was a bit over the top (uh a lie Nicolle?), but that indeed, if Hillary runs, that people will bring up her health. Yeah, okay…whatever.

And I’m sorry about this Nicolle but whenever I hear your name, imma gonna think of this Nicole Wallace:

@1, Yeah, health is always an issue — Dole, McCain, even Reagan, but insinuating brain damage is way over the top.

Just goes to show how afraid they are of Hillary.

Prolix@3: Oh i agree wholeheartedly that the brain damage this was waaay over the top.

Just goes to show how afraid they are of Hillary.

See shrinkage comment from yesterday. 😉

I’m glad you covered this Prolix. What a despicable stunt, from one of the most despicable human beings on the planet. Apparently one of her reps said the following:

“The 66-year-old politician’s rep replied to the report, saying, “Karl Rove has deceived the country for years, but there are no words for this level of lying.”

Laker & I have always loved Stephen Colbert’s “Ham Rove”. He puts that ham with the glasses up on his desk and then does that insane grin of his while putting his arm around it. So funny. Who else but Colbert could come up with a ham as Karl Rove. Whenever we see one of those shaped hams in the grocery store, we always laugh. People around us think we’re nuts.

annie@5: remember what Dubya called him: turd blossom. Nuff said.

@5, I’m with you on the Ham Rove skits — too funny.

This is what I’ve always wondered — who was sitting there in the writing room and first thought, “Doesn’t Karl Rove look like a ham loaf with glasses?” Now that is the person I want to meet. I’d pay the bar bill for a month to be able to sit with her/him and just listen to what is happening in their head.

I have to admit I haven’t seen those skits; never watched Colbert that much. I’ll have to see if they have any of them on youtube or comedy central.

I couldn’t find any of the funny skits, but I found these:

And this followup at the end of this video:

Thanks for the link Annie. Much appreciated!

The lenses were to help correct diplopia, or double vision. This can absolutely result from trauma, but is not the be-all, end-all. Diplopia ia also caused by diabetes, cancer, migraine, some medications, MS, abscesses, sinusitis, Guillian Barre and a host of others. Since Rove is not a doctor – and does not play one on the teevee – perhaps he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express?

Ham Rove still makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.

Hello Bobby!

Sue@15: LOL! Exactly. I always loved those episodes with her in them.
