Karl Rove has a piece up in the WSJ blaming Hurricane Sandy for stopping Mitt’s Big Mo and giving us four more of the Kenyan Muslim Socialist. As I pointed out in a post yesterday, Nate Silver established pre-Sandy that Mitt’s momentum had already stopped.
This is a big problem for Rove because he talked a lot of zillionaires into supporting his Crossroads and Crossroads GPS, and he threw their millions down the toilet in what really should have been a slam dunk for the GOP, not just to win the WH, but the Senate as well. So his “evil genius” reputation is at stake (well, it’s still half right), and he’s tap dancing pretty strenuously.
But as the GOP tries to blame Sandy for their shitty candidate and party, let’s follow their logic to its end.
Back at the time of Katrina, the religious nuts said it was God’s punishment for the gays and the abortions.
So if God sent Sandy just before the election, and Mitt would have won without Sandy, doesn’t that mean, um, that God wanted Obama to win?
