Democrats are the bad guys. See how mean they are

So, there was this protest in front of Karl Rove’s house, OK? Several hundred people followed Bush’s Brain all over his house to get him to back some legislation that was apparently very important to them.
The protest was organized by National People's Action, a coalition of neighborhood advocacy groups based in Chicago. Leaders said they want Bush to advocate for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, a bill that would permit immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years to apply for legal resident status once they graduate from high school. The measure would eliminate provisions of current federal law that discourage states from providing in-state tuition to undocumented student immigrants.
“What?!” I can hear you asking. “Why would anyone protest in front of Rove’s house about legislation?” I know. I asked the same question myself when I first heard about it. I made the guy find it on the web before I would believe. It just didn’t make any sense. What does Karl Rove have to do with the legislative process? Why would anyone think to ask him for help with legislation? What could they possibly hope to accomplish?

And how did they know where he lives? I mean, when John Poindexter was trying to build Big Brother, there was this web site with satellite photos of his house and all kinds of information. I don’t remember hearing of anyone going to his house to protest his plan to create online paramutual betting on international political and military events. When a Pentagon appointee left his conference call notes at a Starbucks, there was a map to Rumsfeld’s house, not Rove’s. I don’t recall mass protests in Rummie’s neighborhood.

So, how is it that large numbers of people go out of their way to locate Karl Rove’s house, drive out there en masse, protest, risk being arrested for disturbing the peace, all for a guy who has no real connection to the thing they’re protesting???

Who would want to run the risk of creating the headlines –


It just doesn’t make any sense.

Selective Use of Self-Inflicted Wounds

Toward the beginning of the Qing Dynasties, an unknown scholar compiled 36 military stratagems. Titled the Secret Art of War (not to be confused with Sun Tzu's "Art of War"
34. Scheme with self-inflicted wounds

(Inflict minor injury on oneself to gain the enemy’s trust) - This is a technique particularly for undercover agents: you make yourself look like a victim of your own people, in order to win the sympathy and confidence of enemies.

Texas Governor's Gay Sex Scandal

Rove Outed CIA Operative Valerie Plame
In 1992, Rove was fired from the 1992 Bush Sr. campaign for trashing Robert Mosbacher, Jr., who was the chief fundraiser for the campaign and an avowed Bush loyalist. Rove accomplished this trashing of Mosbacher by planting a negative story with columnist Bob Novak. The campaign figured out that Karl had done the dirty deed, and he was given his walking papers.

The CIA has asked the Justice Department to investigate the White House regarding a matter of important national security. The wife of a former ambassador named Joseph Wilson, it has been alleged, was 'outed' as an active CIA agent to columnist Robert Novak by this White House in an act of political revenge.

Mr. Rove has done this kind of thing before, specifically using Robert Novak in that one notable attempt to cut down Mosbacher. Rove is a disciple of the undisputed heavyweight champion of political assassins, Lee Atwater, and has often reached into a deep bag of dirty tricks to accomplish his political ends. He knows no ideology beyond power, and has no bones about using it to wreak havoc on anyone who gets in his crosshairs.
This doesn’t really serve as an example of a self-inflicted wound, but I thought I’d throw it in as a reminder. On second thought, Novak is able to win sympathy points by refusing to reveal who in the administration violated federal law because "If I gave up my sources, I would get out of journalism."

So, to review - LIBERAL EXTREMISTS demanding SPECIAL TREATMENT for ILLEGAL immigrants TERRORIZE ROVE’S CHILDREN because Rove engineered a self-inflicted wound. This is much more plausible scenario than to believe that hundreds of people would think to protest at some guy’s house who has nothing to do with the legislation. And it’s not like they haven’t done this before.
