Alex Jones meets Carl Rove on the way to Cleveland and you won't believe what happens next

YouTube recommended this video based on the things that I watch, presumably. I don't know anything about Alex Jones.

Also, "turd blossom" I didn't notice in the video, caught in the comments repeatedly. Looked it up. Turns out a colorful Bush phrase appreciated by Bush watchers.

"because every time he steps in sh|t he comes out smelling like roses." Apparently. That is their guess. I would have guessed similar to lipstick on a pig, or like a cactus blossom except worse. I don't know. It's a weird Alex Jones things. Comments sound like they're written by teens. References to a character in Grand Theft Auto, for example. Conclusion: Alex Jones followers are GTA types.

I might have gone with references to superannuated obese tortoises but that's just based on one picture.

Who said that the GOPe is a bunch of fat cats? Because other than the cat part, that seems to be accurate. What a blimp.

I can never get that mad at Rove.

He did, after all, save us from the Lurch and second chakra Administrations.

AprilApple said...

Me and Alex want to keep a criminal from taking over our governmetn.

Wol - OK then.

AprilApple said...

You're gonna have to prove to me that Karl Rove is an architect of Amnesty.

Karl Rove is made out of gluten.

He's really bad!

ed, Karl Rove gave us Barack Obama instead. But there is no point getting mad.

I title this video Asshole v Asshole. Is Alex Jones Broderick Crawford's outside child?

Sixty Grit said...

At least Broderick Crawford was drunk off his ass at all times, so he had an excuse for being an unintelligible squinty eyed blowhard.

Why does Alex Jones sound like that? Has he been punched in the throat too many times? Did he go the Andy Devine popsicle stick to the vocal cords route? I guess it's a good thing he doesn't use his voice to make a living.

AprilApple said...

When people think of the GOP - rich fat pudding white men - Karl is the poster child. I do wish he'd go away. Not helping.

Sixty Grit said...

Extra helpings!

Rove has as much right to be there as anybody else.

At least he's not acting like the spoiled brat NeverTrumpers who want to take their ball and stay home.

The Hell he did.

When John McCain was more worried about Sarah Palin upstaging him than Pissy beating him is
what gave us the Obamanation.

F U ed

It was the voters alone that gave us Obama. Most voters are nothing like Trumpers, and that's what seems to be missed. Trumpers imagine their own enthusiasm amounts to more than one vote. Elections turn on the votes of people that are nothing like us in this forum - people who fear or are angry about exactly what you like. Trump scares them, plain and simple, and their vote counts as much as yours. I think they outnumber us significantly. That's why we have Obama, and he could win another term even today because of them. Like it or not, they need to be won over.

edutcher said...

No, the vote fraud machine was the only way Pissy made it in '12 and there were allegations (unheeded, sad to say) that it also happened in '08.

April, you really need to revisit '08.

Ed like Rove but HATES Ted Cruz.

Methadras said...

Alex Jones on occasion has something useful and informative, but most of the time he's an agitator and that's okay too, but most of his agitations are centered around going after conservative people like Karl Rove like he did here and when he went after Michelle Malkin and calling her a whore over and over again. Why? Who knows, maybe she rejected his marshmallow advances.

Bag, I just read your idea that we have to win over those who voted for Obama to come vote for Trump. Why? Most of the people that voted for Obama will vote for HRC because they've invested themselves in believing that a pseudo-billionaire like Trump is the very guy they protested against during the Occupy protests, but someone like HRC, she gets a pass because she's one of them ideologically, but yet is multi-hundred millionaire and a criminal, but a guy like trump who's never held office? Why he's the very fat cat they detest. Just look at him. Hates everything they stand for and all the other nonsensical trope they languish in. You really think you are going to win them over? They are no different than ISIS.

edutcher said...

Meth, the people Trump wants are the people who didn't vote for McCain because they thought he wouldn't stand up for them - the Reagan Democrats, who are coming out for him, as well as the minorities who are sick of getting the short end of the Obamanation..

If the LA Times poll released over the weekend (Trump up 3) is right, that means he has 30% Hispanic support.

AprilApple said...

Ed like Rove but HATES Ted Cruz.

No, dear, I just have brains enough to appreciate that, at one time, Rove saved us from a pair of Democrat incompetents as President.

You really have to learn that the rest of the world does not have your one-dimensional, black or white hatreds based on whom you are told to hate.

AprilApple said...

No, ed. I'm talking about YOU. YOU HATE TED CRUZ. Will your head explode if he speaks at the convention? I hope so.

Methadras said...

April, I will be stunned if Ted speaks at the convention and it would be a great speech I have no doubt of that, but he is utterly demotivated.

bagoh20 said...

You have to get the votes of people who right now do not like Trump, or he loses, period.

Think about 8 years of Hillary - 8 freaking years of that voice continuing to blame you and call you a sexist and a racist, while she opens the borders and makes illegals into Dem voters, locking down the decline once and for all.

Trump better get in the game and start playing smart instead of telling us he will someday.

edutcher said...

Cruz is speaking at the convention, last I heard, but my head won't explode.

Nod, maybe, as he is a pompous, crashing bore who will put us all to sleep.

edutcher said...

bag, it's the votes Hillary lost get that are important.

Blacks, Hispanics, women, Bernies - lots of them can't stand her. Convince them the best way to make a statement is vote Trump (or stay home) and she's had it.

Get them, and the NeverTrumpers can stay home and hold their breath till they turn blue.

And Trump is in the game. You're still in '08.

You're trying to head off Rommel, Guderian, and Manteuffel at the Maginot Line.

edutcher said...

Hadda hunt for it.

Trump gave spots to the One True Ted and Little Marco on Wednesday night. Generous, but they're not considered headliners.

Indeed.

" You're still in '08."

It's the same voters, and I hear them saying the same things. In fact, it's harder this time to argue for the Republican. Many could have voted for Romney and lived with it, but the other guy was the first "Black" president. This time they know Hillary is a crook, and she's no Obama, but they would be absolutely ashamed and ridiculed in their circles for voting for Trump. Read stuff from the other half, they may not like Hillary, but they are having an easy and fun time ridiculing Trump, and that's the overwhelming psychology of voting: nobody votes for someone if that vote makes them look stupid or foolish. Not to me, but to many it's like a choice between Al Capone and Fredo Corleone.

edutcher said...

No, yo're telling yourself nothing;s changed and you miss the point.

45% unemployment, war in the streets, the country sold out to its enemies.

People know what's going on and they're not voting for a third term.

Read stuff from the other half, they may not like Hillary, but they are having an easy and fun time ridiculing Trump, and that's the overwhelming psychology of voting: nobody votes for someone if that vote makes them look stupid or foolish.

That's just the standard arrogance of the Left.

Last I looked, Hillary's been taking it on the chin in the ridicule department, 7 ways she's like your abuela. The Armani potato sacks. Fauxcahontas. The Kwanzaa logo.

For the first time in a very long time, the Demos are getting it back in spades. When their own hacks start calling her Crooked Hillary, your side is winning.

Karl Rove gave us Obama.

McCain too, but mostly Rove.

edutcher said...

Not even close, but, if you want to make excuses, feel free.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

McCain was obviously a weak candidate, but at that point it would have been tough for any Republican. Hard to see Mitt Romney winning, given he lost four years later (after the bloom was off the O Rose). Full blame cannot go to Karl, Rumsfeld and Chenney had a lot to do with it too. But Karl was and is terrible, pushed W into all sorts of entitlement expansion and spending, and was no conservative. Had W had better counsel, Obama would likely not have won.

That guy is about as poor a troll as they come. Wouldn't shut up, amidst the guy and his admirers. Here's a hint: If someone calls the cops on you, don't follow them around, start touching them and telling them they're your friend while you goad them endlessly in public with sarcastic verbal abuse.

Pretty funny that YouTube figured out this guy was right up Chip's alley. Though I figure you'd have to be pretty sheltered to have never heard who Alex Jones was before.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Why does Alex Jones sound like that? Has he been punched in the throat too many times?

At the end of the video he had an ad for some type of male "virility" product or whatever. It's like he took as many steroids as Jesse Ventura but lacked the physique for getting some decent muscle development out of it.

As for Jones, I'm sure he has a point to make every now and then. And then you get moments of his like this.

After that episode, Andrew Neil said it was all an act. He calmed down as soon as the cameras weren't on him any longer.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Lol.

William said...

I don't have strong feelings about Karl Rove, one way or the other, but my sympathies were with him in this video. What price fame. It must be kind of a rush to have cute girls ask for a hug and a picture, but whatever transitory pleasure that offers is erased by having this demon slug screeching incessantly in your ear. He just never stopped. Rove did an admirable job of ignoring him until the physical contact, and even then he didn't really lose it.
