    Thumbs down Karl Rove pulling John McCain's puppet strings like he did George Bush

    No wonder John McCain is keeping so silent about his vice presidential selection process. Karl Rove is right in the thick of it. He's maneuvering to get Mitt Romney picked -- and trying to exclude his former best friend, Joe Lieberman, from the process. It looks like Rove has taken control of McCain's v.p. operation:


    Rove, President Bush’s former top campaign adviser and arguably the most prominent political operative of the past generation, has no formal role in McCain’s campaign. But he knows much of the Arizona senator’s high command and has been offering informal advice, both over the phone and in his position as a Fox News analyst, since McCain wrapped up the GOP nomination.

    His decision to wade into the vice presidential selection process could provide Democrats fresh ammunition to tie McCain to the polarizing Bush.

    It is also chafing some Lieberman allies and others wary of the selection of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

    “Rove is pushing Romney so aggressively some folks are beginning to wonder what's going on,” grumbled one veteran Republican strategist.



    This creates a conundrum for McCain. If Romney gets tapped, it show that Rove is still the GOP puppet-master -- which, he is.

    That's not a shock. The Republicans figure that Rove's tactics were key in winning in 2000 and 2004, so why not use him again? I still want McCain to pick Lieberman, so Republicans can flip out.

    Yeah, that's those crazy kids Ike and Tina.

    As for me looking anything like Ike, far from it.

    Shocker. Rove is actually a master manipulator- he knows how to take someone's strengths and turn them into weaknesses (like Kerry with respect to Vietnam). Now the republicans have learned how to do that with Obama- by taking his ability to attract huge crowds and attention and trying to turn it into a negative by calling him a "celebrity." It's fucked up but the voters are the ones who have to be smart and try and look beyond that.

    and I bet Romney will end up being McCain's VP... I really don't see Lieberman getting the spot
