Karl Rove Calls Bernie Sanders 'An Elderly Dyspeptic Bilbo Baggins'

(29) Comments | Posted October 15, 2015 | 9:57 PM

Karl Rove really has a way with words. 

"I call Bernie Sanders an elderly, dyspeptic Bilbo Baggins, appearing like he was at the British labor party meeting," Rove said on "The O'Reilly Factor" Thursday night. "I mean this is just ridiculous," he added, deriding the quality of the Democratic field.

The former Bush advisor first used the colorful epithet in a Wall Street Journal op-ed Wednesday, and is clearly pretty pleased with it. He also had some vivid descriptors for the other candidates:

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley sounded like an overly earnest, slightly too intense 1950s ad man making a bad pitch. Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee was as hapless as a puppy stranded in a hurricane. And former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, probably sensing how inconsequential he is, was angry all night. It’s hard to believe this crew will draw many viewers for future debates.

Given all that, Rove isn't counting Vice President Joe Biden out just yet. "I know the narrative is, Biden looked at the debate and is less likely to run. I'm not certain that's the case."

It may be too soon to count Bernie out, either. The Sanders campaign raked in $1.4 million dollars in the hours following the debate, largely from small donors.

What Jonathan Chait Doesn't Understand About Identity Politics

Race is an absurd illusion with material consequences, a paradox that makes it slippery to discuss. (In the words of author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, "race only matters because of racism.") Race is an invented political idea with no biological basis, but because of our collective buy-in...
