ABC News’ Benjamin Bell asked Karl Rove what he thought about the above question from a viewer via Facebook:
Via ABC news, to spare you from having to watch the entire video, the relevant segment about Colbert starts at about 3:13.
How do you feel about Stephen Colbert's big Canned Ham rendition of your head?
"Well, look, he’s an entertainer so he gets to be funny and exaggerate things and so forth. Though I have to admit, when he took out the knife and started stabbing it, I think he might need a little bit of professional counseling on his anger management issues.
“I don’t know whether that was working out his inner feelings, or encouraging maybe someone to maybe mimic him or just sort of being funny. But there was a little bit of, you know, anxiety in his stabs there, so...”
Below is the Colbert Report segment in question. Color me biased, but IMHO, Colbert the Comedian doesn't appear anxious or angry. Oh that's right, Rove is the master of projection.
I wonder what kind of management Karl Rove thinks he himself might need after all his lies and smear campaigns.
What kind of management might he need after making a total ass of himself on live TV as he went into full-on denial on election night, suffering a meltdown when Ohio was called for President Obama?
What kind of management would be appropriate after he “scared” people with “this Orwellian sense that black helicopters” will confiscate guns?
