Quick, call hell to see if it's frozen over

From The Atlantic;

No less an authority figure than Karl Rove has warned Republican operatives from demagoguing Barack Obama's middle name. […]

At a closed door meeting of GOP state executive directors in late January, Rove said the safest way to refer to Obama would be to use his honorific, “Sen. Obama.” […]

The context was, you're not going to stigmatize this guy. You shouldn't underestimate him," one of the executive directors said. Rove said that the use of "Barack Hussein Obama" would perpetuate the notion that Republicans were bigoted and would hurt the party.
Don’t know if I find it interesting or worrisome that I’m on the same wavelength about something that Karl “Palpatine” Rove is.

And when the voice of reason in the republican party is Karl Rove, you know things have gotten topsy-turvy…

Perhaps we should look outside to see if pigs are flying…
