I’m shocked that Kevin Drum is so easily taken in by Karl Rove’s claim to be an atheist. If we’ve learned anything in the last six years, it’s that when Karl Rove’s lips are moving, he’s lying, generally for partisan advantage. He knows full well that (1) he’s unpopular (2) atheism is unpopular and (3) voters still tend to associate Republicans with religiosity and Democrats with godlessness. So he’s decided to pretend to be an atheist, hoping that some of the bad reputation he’s worked so hard to earn rubs off on us.
Un-uh. No way. I’m not having any. The godly put Rove and his puppet in power, and the godly are stuck with the pair of them.
