Karl Rove Brings Down the House

"I make no apologies," Rove said when an audience member asked how personally responsible he felt for the war. "It was the right thing to do. The world is better off with (Saddam Hussein) gone. We all thought he had weapons of mass destruction. The whole world did. He didn't. ...
"In the aftermath of the removal of the regime, al-Qaeda decided to make its stand in Iraq. And we have got to, in my opinion, fight 'em and beat 'em there; otherwise we are going to face them somewhere else." -Karl Rove at the Aspen Ideas Festival, July 8

Is the truth just allergic to this man? Or any sense of conscience or accountability? Or does he just lie so spectacularly and with such abandon that he can be considered certifiably insane, a danger to himself and others, the standard for being what is quaintly known in the psychiatric world as "blue-papered"-committed without consent.

Karl, they're coming to take you away, hah-hah...Yes. I think it's time. Would that it were true...
