Rove Stalking Meghan McCain on Twitter

By Ben Cohen

The last person you would ever want to have on

your twitter page is Karl Rove, particularly if you are Meghan McCain.

The slimy reptilian creature did his best to smear her father back in

2000, spreading rumors that he had fathered an illegitimate black child

(amongst other outrageous slanders), effectively knocking him out of

the race. Anyhow, Rove has apparently added Meghan as a contact on

Twitter in an attempt to plug himself into ‘the youth vote’. The savvy

McCain was all over it, ripping the creepy war criminal for the transparent move:

Oddly enough, Rove’s Tweets seem to reveal a softer side to him. Call

it savvy marketing, but I find it disingenuous. And it’s a bit weird to

think his people—not even Rove himself—are following me. I’d like to

think it’s because they find what I’m saying entertaining, but I can’t

help thinking they’re just trying to seem connected to young people.

Meghan McCain brings a remarkably fresh perspective to the political

spectrum, mostly because she is an intelligent and thoughtful

conservative, open to debate and willing to admit how ridiculous her

party is. Rove represents the polar opposite, but his slithering

political instincts are literally forcing him to stalk the younger

generation in the hope of picking up some tricks. Embracing new

technology won’t save the Republican Party, just like hiring minorities

and women won’t. Ideas will rescue the party, and unfortunately for

Rove, he doesn’t have any.
