Save the date! National hero Karl Rove coming to Lafayette!
I have a confession to make: I have a fascination for maniacal geniuses, who, without any sense of remorse, shame, or common human decency, cold-bloodedly seek power and influence over other people's lives, including over world events. For example, I often think, I wouldn't be fuming and ranting on a local, community blog if I had long ago channeled my inner Vladimir Putin. Gosh, my sphere of influence would have been so much wider--and deadlier!
I could have been more like political strategist Karl Rove, who is best known as President George W. Bush's top advisor--or, rather, as "Bush's Brain."
Anyway, Rove, a "great American" (to borrow the words of Sean Hannity) is coming to Lafayette on March 30. Contra Costa Times Political Editor Lisa Vorderbrueggen reported in her column Sunday that Rove will be speaking at a lunch event sponsored by Political Vanguard, the conservative web site of California Republican Party Vice Chairman Tom Del Beccaro. All proceeds for the event will go to the Contra Costa Republican Party.
"It's unclear how much it will cost to bring Rove to Lafayette or who will pay," Vorderbrueggen wrote. "Speaker fees are negotiated and can vary wildly."
If you want to more information about Rove's appearance in Contra Costa County, go to the Political Vanguard's website--although as of late Sunday, the Rove appearance page was still under construction.
