Karl Rove Gave Grover Norquist $26 Million in 2012

Dispatches3There have been a lot of fun headlines this year (as there are every year) and the above certainly goes on the list. You can read the article with that headline at the Breitbart website.

My question is this: Why in the world does Karl Rove even have $26 million to give away? Some of us have known for many years about Rove’s severe limitations as a political operator and his terrible judgment. But guess who doesn’t get that yet: big conservative and libertarian donors.

I wrote about this problem recently. Here are the articles:
