Karl Rove went too far yesterday. Cutting off national funds from Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin (R-MO) wasn’t enough. He then had to joke about murdering the man to get him out of the way. That has roused conservative activists everywhere to shout with one voice: Karl Rove must go. He is no longer worthy, if he ever was, to plan for getting Republicans elected. The reason: Karl Rove does not want to get conservatives elected, but only Republicans. Those two terms should be indistinguishable. Karl Rove distinguishes them. To his shame.
