While John Boehner was carrying water for POTUS on This Week, Fox News Sunday (3/17/13) was not to be outdone overseeing a grudge match between FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe and Steve LaTourette, a former congressman from Ohio who know heads up The Republican Mainstream Partnership. The latter would be more aptly name LaTourette Syndrome based on the constant twitch of his smarmy patronizing facial expressions and gesticulations as he disparaged Kibbe who maintained a Clint Eastwood level of cool throughout.
LaTourette Syndrome has permeated the crumbling GOP establishment leaving conservatives cold and disinterested. I myself am having trouble not changing my party affiliation to independent just to make a point such was the bitter bite of LaTourette’s misogynist, racist message. This barnacle refers to Tea Party supported members of congress as “chuckleheads.”
Literally pointing the finger, (not the same one I had up at that point) at a cool, calm and composed Kibbe, he curled his lip and said “They brought us Harry Reid as the majority leader,” citing media smeared conservatives such as Sharron Angle, Richard Mourdock as well as “I always forget her name, the witch in Delaware,” said Latourette, to which talking head turned chucklehead Chris Wallace giggled and chimed in; “Christine O’Donnell.”

Hey Charlie Christ, you forgot something on your way out the door, come pick up LaTourette and take Karl Rove with you. Both of whom are ready to roll up the sleeves of their blue shirts and take their cues from the Democratic party and abandon principle for victory.
Prompted by Wallace, Rove tees off on Sarah on several points ostensibly to get back at her for a comment she made during her brilliant speech at CPAC. Trouble is, Palin never named Rove by name.
LaTourette syndrome continued to spread. “Everyone agrees legitimate rape was stupid, and if there is a child out of rape that is what G-d intended, “ said Wallace. Gee Mr. “I’m not a journalist, I just play one on TV” Wallace, that might have been a good time to toss in some far more recent Democratic rape gaffs on the fair and balanced network.
Last point for Chris Wallace, if you are going to wag your finger in Mitt Romney’s face about his dogs’ accommodations where the dog didn’t die, don’t use phrases like “You’ve got a dog in this fight”, as you did when pivoting to Karl Rove on PACS and primaries. In the absence of the fair and balanced facts, feel free to rely on rhetoric but a “dog in the race” works equally well.
Your welcome. My bill is in the mail and I won’t hold my breath. For anything.
