This was a good idea, I love Rove but that statement went too far. (http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/31/reporter-goes-inside-karl-rove-billionaire-fund-raiser/?hpt=hp_bn3)

(CNN) - Karl Rove, a former adviser to President George W. Bush and now head of the conservative super PAC American Crossroads, apologized on Friday to Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri after a reporter published biting words Rove used to describe the embattled Senate candidate.

"We should sink Todd Akin. If he's found mysteriously murdered, don't look for my whereabouts," Rove said Thursday at a private fundraiser, according to a Businessweek reporter who was not supposed to be there.

Sounds like Rove has been hanging around with Rohm Emanuel......

I usually admire Rove, but he went way too far. Maybe the apology is coming because I saw one of the newest polls, where Akin is leading McCaskill by 2 points. If there's one thing that you can say about all politicians, they're weasles.

I disagree. Weasels are much more honorable than politicians. After all, weasels are predators that fend for themselves. Politicians are just parasites.
