Karl Rove. The man who started the whisper campaign to ruin John McCain in the 2000 election by telling everyone he had a secret (gasp!) black baby outside of marriage.
Karl's autobiography is as honest and self-critical as an auto-biography by Saddam Hussien titled, "Why The Whole World Loved Me!"
Note that nowhere in the book does Karl every admit to doing anything wrong or making a mistake. He (in his own words) is but a humble patriot toiling in obscurity and rising to power only reluctantly and only because his country begged him to.
Historians are not just dispassionate chroniclers. By their selection, ordering, highlighting, attribution and analysis of facts they fashion a particular version of the past. And they also play a part in the disputes of the present, by legitimising or undermining the rationales, heroes and myths which influence current debates. Historical figures are forever being conscripted for fresh cultural battles.
So he's a fat faced liar... It's what we all knew already, it's what he was hired for in the first place. The only interesting thing is that he hasn't given up now that he no longer has the job. If he does that in his free time, what did they pay him for in the first place?
What a waste of money.
