House Republicans could pass a bill that funds the government while killing all ObamaCare spending. But the Democratic Senate could just amend the measure to restore funding and send it back to the House. What then? Even the defund strategy’s authors say they don’t want a government shutdown. But their approach means we’ll get one.

A respected paycheck-generating commentator just called the Republican strategy to try to “defund” ObamaCare in the latest budget battle stupid.*

Bring it on, Karl baby. Bring it on, doughboy. Bring on your little whiteboard.
Leading conservative Mark Levin on fellow leading conservative Karl Rove. The remark is emblematic of the civil war brewing in the GOP: On the one side are pragmatists like Rove, who believe the Republican Party needs to nominate more moderate candidates in order to win elections; on the other side are idealists like Levin, who would rather see radical right-wingers lose elections than moderate Republicans win ‘em. The Tea Party contingent of the GOP is outraged at Rove’s newly-unveiled Conservative Victory Project, which seeks to intervene in Republican primaries to make sure that would-be Todd Akins don’t wind up with the nomination. source

Super PACs are still a bad idea. Corporations should not be able to give unlimited sums to political campaigns. It is bad for our democracy.
Bill Burton, co-founder of an Obama-supporting super PAC, Priorities USA. This is a significant question for Democrats: Should progressives who oppose the very existence of super PACs also oppose progressive super PACS? Or is the utilization of super PACS a necessary step to changing the legal framework that makes them possible? Burton seems to believes it’s the second. “Citizens United harms our country, not just the liberal cause,” he says. “I’m proud of the work we did at Priorities in this election, but this system is broken and needs reform.” source (paywall)

BRUTAL Twitter burn. Also, hilarious.

Plus, all he’s selling is a stupid book, one you have to mail something in to buy and giving away a personalized bookplate to go with. He’s totally missing out on an opportunity to sell sleepwear — you know, a Karl Robe.

Karl Rove’s $1 billion plan to become CEO of the Republican Party

Karl Rove is giving us a serious case of scopophobia right now.

Speaking of anti-Obama ads, here’s the early output of Karl Rove’s $25 million campaign to take on the president with attack ads. (Unlike the WTF thing we posted earlier, the attacks are strictly related to fiscal policy.) The Obama camp has already responded with a point-by-point YouTube video. Which is smart.

Obama too cool for Karl Rove? American Crossroads, Karl Rove’s Super PAC, just released this ad mocking the president’s rep for doing cool things, such as slow-jamming with Jimmy Fallon, by dropping in a bit of reality towards the end of this clip. Thoughts? (ht Zeke Miller of BuzzFeed)

John Boehner feeling pressure from caucus over payroll tax-cut fracas
Boehner also felt pressure outside his caucus to not listen to his caucus, because they were about to hand Obama the election. All sorts of pundits have been saying this. For example, Karl Rove: "I think the speaker retains the enthusiastic support of the vast majority of the people in his caucus. And the people who … in the last couple of days who have been upset with him are in no place to mount any kind of a coup or a leadership attempt." Protip, John: Listen to Karl Rove.

The House should pass an extension that locks in the thousands of Keystone XL pipeline jobs, prevents any disruption in the payroll tax holiday or other expiring provisions, and allows Congress to work on a solution for the longer extensions.
Mitch McConnell also threw John Boehner under the bus regarding the payroll tax cut. He follows Karl Rove.
