Karl Rove and smudge pots

Strange, I always considered Rove to be a demon spawn.

Book says Rove ordered office exorcism Karl Rove says he's not The Exorcist. Rove, the Bush political shaman Democrats love to demonize, enlisted a trio of clergymen to exorcise Hillary Rodham Clinton's left-wing spirit when he moved into her West Wing office in 2001, according to an unflattering new biography.

Clinton smiled and shook her head in disbelief Wednesday when asked about the tale, which appears in “The Architect: Karl Rove and the Master Plan for Absolute Power,” by James Moore and Wayne Slater.

“I'm speechless,” she finally said, heading toward a Senate elevator.

Later, Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines quipped, “If the story is true . . . they sure did exorcise any lingering competence right out of the building.”

Deal Hudson, a former Fordham University professor Rove enlisted to woo Catholic voters, told Moore and Slater that he witnessed the exorcism, which he described as “an actual liturgical ceremony.”
