.......Holding a Martini Making Snide Comments About Everyone Else

June 23, 2008 1:36 PM

ABC News' Christianne Klein reports that at a breakfast with Republican insiders at the Capitol Hill Club this morning, former White House senior aide Karl Rove referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, as "coolly arrogant."

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said, per Christianne Klein. "He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

Bet McCain is screaming through his clinched teeth: "Donít Make The Guy Sound Cool!"

The Nation -- Charlie Black, senior advisor to John McCain, has caused an uproar in political circles by claiming that another terrorist attack on US soil "would be a big advantage" for McCain.

For those who've followed Black's career, this latest "gaffe" should hardly be surprising. Black has a long history of rough-and-tumble politics, on behalf of some of the most controversial figures in this country and abroad

Black was a protege of the late GOP operative Lee Atwater, who coldly implemented the Republican Party's racially divisive "Southern strategy." Both Atwater and Black were longtime advisors to former North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms. In 1990, with Black as his senior advisor (the same position he now holds for McCain), Helms ran this ad against his African-American opponent, Harvey Gantt.

Here's the script: "You needed that job and you were the best qualified. But they had to give it to a minority, because of a racial quota. Is that really fair? Harvey Gantt says it is. Gantt supports Ted Kennedy's racial quota law, that makes the color of your skin more important than your qualifications. You'll vote on this issue next Tuesday. For racial quotas: Harvey Gantt. Against racial quotas: Jesse Helms."

But Charlie Black is married to the former Shirley Temple, the original little miss sunshine. Surely he couldn't be Rovian. :D

Actually, I don't think the image of Obama cooly making fun of the little people will play well in the Heartland or the South. The libs might be in awe of that image, but not the regular folks.

I hope you don't really believe that about Charles Black being married to Shirley Temple! She was married to Charles Alden Black (1919-2005). The current Charles Black is someone who has been around Washington forever (not California), and a couple of friends of mine worked for him when he had his consulting firm of Black, Manafort and Stone.

The Stone of BMS, by the way, was Roger Stone, who used to be married to Anne Stone, the head of Republican Women for Choice. Roger and his current wife raised a few eyebrows (and more than a few smiles) a few years ago here in Washington when they were "outed" as members of an S&M club.
