  •  You just have to be wrong in the right way ... (8+ / 0-)

    ... in order to maintain a lucrative career on wingnut welfare.  The key is to be wildly, creatively, hyperbolically wrong in areas that are immune from testability.  Keep things in the speculative realm while constructing a pernicious narrative and you are golden.  The mistake that Rove and Morris made was to be wrong on something that was going to actually take place - and take place in such a small span of time that the average conservative would notice the glaring wrongness of it all.  If they had been wrong five days earlier then no one would have cared but they were wrong five minutes before the event so even a conservative could spot the mistake.

    But Grover is a different case.  He can say whatever he wants because his words are meaningless.  As long as Grover continues to be bankrolled by wealthy conservatives and uses that money to primary errant Republicans then he will have power over the GOP.  He is nothing - his wealthy paymasters are the key.

    Please do not be alarmed. We are about to engage... the nozzle.

      •  Not necessarily, he seems to actually believe ... (0+ / 0-)

        ... his own bullshit.  He is a middle-man to wealthy puppeteers and also a true-believer.  If anything, he draws so much ire because he speaks the truth that most conservative politicians fear to utter.  He is the indispensable functionary to wealthy sociopaths -and is likely a sociopath himself.
