It wasn't George Allen's fault, it's YOUR fault for watching
I mean, duh. Since when has Karl Rove been wrong, right?
At a forum today marking Communication Week at Texas State University, Karl Rove stepped clear of current events and withstood hecklers while tracing the history of White House communications from President Washington to the George W. Bush administration.So remember this; according to Karl Rove, it is perfectly fine to call people racial slurs in public. It is NOT ok if you get caught and someone has the nerve to call you out on it. All this from the man who bugged his own office and then accused someone else of doing it.
Presidents once communicated with Americans solely in writing, Rove said, with no president leaving Washington to give speeches until the mid-1800s. Today, he said, demand for information from the White House prevails around the clock, and the Internet has touched off an explosion of information sources — some questionable.
Referring to YouTube, the video site that's a must-see for many, Rove said: "That can disrupt anything. Just ask former Sen. George Allen."
fAllen, a Virginia Republican, lost his re-election last year in the wake of an amateur videotaper catching him calling an audience member a name that few judged charitably.
