[Retracted] Case Closed: Georg Soros Sponsored Ad Proves, Conclusively, That Karl Rove's Name Begins With K, Just Like the KKK

Seems to be entirely in error. See correction at end.

A radio spot actually points that out, KKKids:

If you’ve ever doubted that the Democrats’ luminaries are either A) loopy and/or B) convinced that their constituents are total morons, then listening to George Soros’ commercial detailing the evils of Karl Rove will forever erase any doubts. I first heard it last week while driving through New York State and listening to talk radio, and my first impression was that it was a clever and very funny spoof on the Democrats’ feelings about Karl Rove.

A very lugubrious voice starts by telling the audience that Karl Rove, Like George W. Bush is from Texas and therefore, like Bush, he’s a liar. In the background a whispering second voice echoes what the first voice is saying, "he lies…" Then the voice goes on to say that Rove leaked the name of a secret CIA agent to the press, all the while accompanied by the whispering voice echoing "CIA agent to the press…" Finally the voice says that Karl Rove’s name starts with the letter K, just like the Klan. Then to make sure that no one would think this was a clever spoof, a tag at the end of the commercial informs the listener that the commercial was paid for by George Soros.

The next shoe to drop: "Rove," much like "Hitler," contains the letter "e," long known to be the "power-mad cryptofascist of the Latin alphabet" and the "sexually deviant Caligula of the alphanumeric family."

Can't make this stuff up.

Well, you could, but that would be senseless.

Correction/Retraction: Damn, I wish I could just delete this post, but some stupid "rule" about "openness" says I have to keep this embarassing post here.

A commenter tells me that the writer of the linked piece got this 100% wrong, and that this ad IS a spoof, one from Rush Limbaugh's show.

I don't know for sure, but it sure does seem too ridiculous to be real.
