I guess Karl Rove forgot about the millions of emails stored on a private server at the Republican National Committee servers when Dubya was in office, because he went on a really stupid rant this morning.

While discussing the email server, which no one really cares much about, Rove played the Righteous One Speaking For Common Men Everywhere.

"Not only does [the server] reinforce that she is not only dishonest and not untrustworthy, that she lied to us about every one of the major claims that she made about this, but it also leaves the stench that the rules don't apply to her," Rove claimed.

And then he delivers the stroke of irony that would be best delivered in the form of a lightning strike.

"If the next Secretary of State came in and said, I'm going to set up my own private server in my home and I’m going to do exactly what Hillary Clinton did, do you think that the official Washington line would be, go ahead and do it because that's your -- your right, just as it was for Hillary Clinton?"

He continued, "So ordinary Americans are looking at this saying, you know what, Bill went and met with the attorney general. The fix it in. Clinton’s been endorsed by President Obama. The attorney general -- even the attorney general admits it was a bad thing to have happen. So the ordinary American -- a lot of ordinary Americans are looking at this saying, there are two sets of rules, one for the Clintons and one for everybody else."

There's a bolt of lightning with Rove's name on it waiting to strike him for that piece of drivel.

Again, I repeat. at least 5 million emails destroyed. Stored on a private server nestled inside the Republican National Committee, used by White House officials and the President of the United States.
