If Karl Rove is the Emperor...

Then Rahm is his Darth Vader...

Who's John Galt.

Be very afraid. It suits you, though it truly is paranoia on your part.

Good man for the job.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Bad analogy. Or maybe on second thought, you were closer than you originally thought.

Maybe TNT shout use the fact that Rahm's dad was part of the Irgun, that would be amo for calling him a terrorist. Do your research next time TNT you might actually find something

Methinks perhaps TNTRower spent a bit too much time near the grenade and mortar ranges, on the wrong side of the sandbags, whilst in the military.

I still have a distinct problem with the first part of the analogy "If Karl Rove is the Emperor...". Rove was the hatchet man. It was his job and he was good at it. But he was never "Emperor".

At most he was Deputy, but then again, so was Barney Fife.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

At the risk of being called a Star Wars Geek II:
Darth Vader is Anakin Skywalker turned over to the dark side under the mentorship of Emperor Palpatine. Was Rahm Emanuel ever a disciple of Karl Rove? Did Rahm ever jump party lines?

Bad analogy, even in second thought.

Not surprising considering the thread author’s an idiot.
