On Thursday morning, top Republican strategist Karl Rove proclaimed, ‘‘The dysfunctional Congress finally appears to be working again as the Founders intended.’’Why does it seem that any story that starts with a quote from Karl Rove turns out to be bad news for liberty?
Just hours later, the GOP-controlled Senate confirmed as attorney general — i.e., as the chief federal law-enforcement officer of the United States — a lawyer who quite openly supports the systematic non-enforcement of federal law...And why does it always seem that any story beginning with ‘‘Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’’ turns out to be good news for the Democrats?
[Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell...
But I repeat myself. Ahem...
[Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell... joined nine others on the roster of Republican senators who took an oath to uphold the Constitution then supported an attorney general who had vowed to undermine the Constitution:(And yes, the Hollywood Ten were guilty, too.)
...In addition to the aforementioned ten Republicans who said ‘‘aye’’ on the final vote... there are ten others who conspired in the GOP’s now routine parliamentary deception: Vote in favor of ending debate, knowing that this will give Democrats ultimate victory, but cast a meaningless vote against the Democrats in the final tally in order to pose as staunch Obama opponents when schmoozing the saps back home. These ten:
- Jeff Flake (Ariz.)
- Mark Kirk (Ill.)
- Susan Collins (Maine)
- Thad Cochran (Miss.)
- Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
- Rob Portman (Ohio)
- Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
- Orrin Hatch (Utah)
- and Ron Johnson (Wis.).
are just as willfully complicit in Lynch’s confirmation and her imminent execution of Obama’s lawlessness.
- Cory Gardner (Col.)
- Pat Roberts (Kan.)
- Richard Burr (N.C.)
- Thom Tillis (N.C.)
- Mike Rounds (S.D.)
- John Thune (S.D.)
- Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
- Bob Corker (Tenn.)
- John Cornyn (Texas)
- and Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.)

Karl Rove is a gigantic disappointment. I have to simply turn the page in the WSJ when his column appears.
He needs to fade away like his boss did (well, at least until this last week). He'd get a lot more respect if he did.
