Food: mutton

Mike Malloy has lost his marbles

Mike Malloy notices that the DPW deal is a tempest in a teapot, which no doubt it is, but then he goes on to insist that the whole big noise is a Karl Rove plot to make the 'Republicans' look good.

It's the von Daniken fallacy: just as Egyptians aren't so stupid that they just had to have help from space aliens to build the pyramids, politicians don't need no Karl Rove to come up with crap like flag-burning or who-gives-a-damn ports deals. They are drawn to it like flies. And delayed-reaction non-scandals like this have been happening my whole life.
