Its obvious that the oppositional party which has almost merged with the positional party must develop a cure for KRS (Karl Rove Syndrome) now that Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has closed his eyes to Karls delinquencies.
What can Progressive Democrats do to stop the spread of KRS that brings fear and self-doubt into the hearts and minds of people who, prior to 9/11, often displayed courage or at least convinced us they did?
The answer lies in a thorough examination of Rove himselfa physical, if you willa history of activities, illnesses, interests, passions, a peek into every area of his life to see exactly what makes him function so efficiently in shutting down the Democratic Party and turning all but the strongest into yellow Jello.
Essentially, we have to determine exactly what species this man-like animal is.
Sometimes, it is said that a cure can be as bad as the disease for which it was developed. In the case of KRS, thats likely. We could initiate a clinical trial to evaluate alternate antidotes for this disorder. Of course, KRS would probably mutate to a resistant strain and continue the infection of infusing fear and invading all areas of our lives.
