Roving Far and Wide

Karl Rove is a great American patriot, a genius, a statesman, even. And now he has proven his phenomenal, overflowing patriotism by setting up a secretive finance group, in conjunction with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce–that’s right, our very own, United States Chamber of Commerce–to run sleazy political ads, funded by foreign investors. I can’t imagine why all these foreign companies are just itching to hook up with Rove and influence American politics…can you?

Update: Thanks to reader Ivy B for pointing out that the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent has detailed the slime quotient in the Rove/Chamber ads. Naturally, I’m shocked–shocked!–that Karl Rove would be involved in anything less than totally accurate advertisements. He stands for the very best in American politics.
