Dear Mr. Rove,
Last night, I had an interaction with a government major at the University of Texas, which I chronicled on Facebook:
Random UT Student: All the great Presidents were Democrats; FDR, JFK, Lincoln.Mr. Rove, please stop brainwashing me.
Me: Actually, Lincoln was the founder of the GOP.
Random UT Student: You've gotta stop letting Karl Rove brainwash you.
We have met three times. The first time, on November 5th, 2004, was on a D.C. Street kitty corner from the White House; I was the Bob Novak intern who congratulated you on President Bush's re-election three days earlier. On St. Patrick's Day 2010, I attended your book signing in San Antonio. Two months later, on the day of the flash crash, I was at a dinner you did for KLUP in San Antonio. I'm not sure if you put something in my drink, or if you used some sort of cosmic mind rays, but I don't appreciate you brainwashing me.
I believe George W. Bush's education policy was an unconstitutional intrusion into state sovereignty. I believe the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood across the Middle East undercuts the central premise of George W. Bush's 'Freedom Agenda.' I believe Chief Justice John Roberts, a George W. Bush appointee, MUST be impeached. I believe Henry Paulson illegally violated his fiduciary responsibility to American Taxpayers. Obviously, Karl Rove, YOU brainwashed me into thinking this.
Why are you brainwashing me Karl Rove?!?
Why are you making me believe falsehoods like Lincoln being a Republican?!?
With all due respect Karl Rove, please stop brainwashing me.
