Karl Rove Is a Delightful Human Being

Posted By on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 11:00 AM

Nice instance of the pot calling the kettle black, I suppose, when Karl Rove writes for FoxNews.com that Barney Frank is "incapable of feeling shame, regret or a sense of personal responsibility," he probably knows from his own experience as a soulless political hack:

It was because he was going to retire anyway, lost a favorite port town in redistricting and had a tough race last time.

Was this really why Congressman Barney Frank announced today he’s retiring from the House of Representatives?

Perhaps another reason was he’s no longer chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and like a lot of bullies, Mr. Frank found it’s not easy to be stripped of the power to torment and humiliate others.

[...]

Mr. Frank is incapable of feeling shame, regret or a sense of personal responsibility. These are emotions for lesser beings. He’s leaving because of redistricting or to avoid having to raise money or facing those nasty little voters every two years. The House will be a better place for his departure.
