At sketch group last night, the talented Eric Sturdevant was working on caricature of evil Republican mastermind Karl Rove. I let go with my standard barrage of insults and epithets, as few people in the world raise my ire quite like this douchebag. "He's a power-mad scumbag!", all that. Eric took it a step further, saying that he personally thought that Rove was the Antichrist. "He doesn't look like he would be, but he is." And that's when it occurred to me...Rove is the Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man. He's the living embodiment of all that is evil disguised as a doughy bald guy in Wal-Mart glasses.
I think that, while horribly misguided and feeble-minded, Dubya actually thinks, as a result of his evangelical programming, that what he's doing is right. Rove, on the other hand, seems completely amoral, driven only by and willing to do anything to gain power. His disgusting character assassination of John McCain during the 2000 SC primary is evidence of that (Seriously, are there any reasonable (i.e., non-fundamentalist) right-leaners out there who think McCain wouldn't have done a better job as president than Bush? You have this walking sack of diarrhea to thank for making sure it wouldn't happen.). He's terrifying...and though I think the chances are slim, I'd love nothing more than to see his fat ass nailed to the wall.
