A Democrat fund-raising document exploits fear of Rove … and his unstoppable quality meats:

“This is no joke! Don’t stop reading until you’ve finished this letter,” pleads the two-page mailing, sent to Democrats this week by state party Chairman Paul Berendt.

“I am not an alarmist,” Berendt wrote in the letter.

“This is not Chicken Little crying: ‘The sky is falling.’ “

“Renew your membership today at the most generous level you can afford and help me stop Rove’s mignons in their tracks.”

In an interview yesterday, Berendt described the letter as “more hard-hitting” than the party’s regular fund-raising appeals.

“But we believe this, too,” he said. “We believe that Rove is in regular contact with people here.”

It isn’t Rove’s people they must fear; it’s his delicious tenderloin steaks.

    1. There are certainly a lot of democrats feeling both gutted and filleted!

    1. No wonder the Democrats hate No Child Left Behind…

    1. Isn’t it funny how evildoers have ‘minions’ while virtuous types have ‘supporters’. The implication is that Rove’s underlings do his bidding out of fear or coercion, whereas Berendt’s do it out of love for a common good.

      I must go now and put rat poison in Janeane Garofalo’s cornflakes, as per Rove Edict No. 19453… maybe then he’ll give me back my puppy.

    1. When I think of mignon I think of a saucy French ingenue

      I don’t have a French dictionary, but doesn’t it mean something like tender and young?  Which is even funnier

    1. Maybe he meant Rove’s onions?

    1. Roy

      I have Harrap’s Shorter to hand.

      (1) adj: Dainty, tiny, delicate (person)
      (2) substantive: Pet, darling, favourite.

      Did Berendt mean Karl Rove’s “darlings” perhaps?

    1. It’s only a matter of time before this irratational fear of Karl Rove merits pschological study. Would anyone like to place bets on what name this phobia will go under?


      Acute Karlsfaultis syndrome?

    1. Tim, honestly, what’s your beef? How can you joke when there is so much at steak? I mean, Democrat policies are a underdone at the best of times and the good ones are increasingly rare. But we can’t afford to be chickens when there is a whitehouse turkey gobbling up the civil rights of the sheeple.

    1. Berendt should relax, they’re only plastic mignons.

    1. According to Carol J. Adams (_The Sexual Politics of Meat_) meat is a symbol of patriarchy.

    1. Steady, Steady…ssshhh
      The voices are telling me something!
      Mignons …. Beef … Mad cows!
      Karlsfault/Jacob’s Disease!
      Jacob was renamed Israel!
      That’s It!!!
      Mad Cow Disease is a plot by Karl Rove and The Jews.
      I must away to alert the world! Where’s my tinfoil hat with the propeller on top?

    1. Ref 7: Mignonitis?

      But it would be wise not to be too jocular, the mob can inflict enormous damage in a very short time, to man, life and limb.

      I know the word phonetically, but spelling it? Egads. Back to the dictionary 🙁

      Ah “minions” :-0

    1. Am I the only one who’s disappointed that he didn’t start with “This is not a chain letter…”? All the other stuff is basically there, including the implied threat that it’ll be YOUR! fault if Rove can continue to, err, rove around unless you pay lots of money for the cause of stopping him.

      Posted by PW on 03/08 at 07:15 AM • #


    1. LOL!  You’re right, PW, and maybe he should have.  It might be considered a form of the pyramid scheme, which could get him in trouble.

      My own take is that Rove has become Loki in the internal mythology of the Left: he’s constantly tricking them by underhanded means, never mind that they keep falling for those tricks…

    1. “mignons”

      heh. “b-b-b-b-but spell check said it was ok”

      hmm, what’s on the menu at the white house the next time jjimmy carter come to visit?
      “ragout of karl rove’s mignons with some sauce malaise”

    1. If Bush=Hitler, then who is Karl Rove? I think that a good case can be made for Rove=Professor Moriarty.  In The Final Problem, Holmes describes Moriarty this way: “He is the organizer of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in London. He is a genius, a philosopher, an abstract thinker. He has a brain of the first order.”

      The analogy turns out to be even better in the light of Nicholas Meyer’s 1976 novel The Seven-Per-Cent Solution. Here, Holmes’s obsession with Professor Moriarty turns out to be the product of his imagination, brought about by intense cocaine-induced fanatasy. Moriarty turns out to be a rather ordinary man.

    1. This is serious.  They’ve already taken over our tenderloins and New York Strip has long since been written off as lost to the Rovian cause.  Sure – “The chuck, brisket, round and shank are the most exercises muscles and hence, the toughest.” But think of the mignons!  The Mignons!

    1. It is rare to see a medium so well done.

      Posted by charles austin on 03/08 at 08:36 AM • #


    1. I must say thet I am pleasantly suprised to discover that my sister, Mignon, is in the employ of Rove.  She’s been keeping that one quiet!  And I thought she was voting Family First.

    1. Rove is a past master at fricaseeing doves

      Step 1: Cut dove along backbone
      Step 2: Remove guts

    1. Sounds like the Chicken Littles are frying in their own paranoia. I can’t wait until they’re done!

      What’ll ye have, light or dark meat, me Hearties? Arrrrr, me juices flow.

    1. As an interesting exercise, try copying the Seattle Post article, then replacing /Rove/ and /Karl Rove/ with /Satan/. Because the Democratic Party is now a televangelist movement, with just a few of the symbols changed.

      “But we believe this, too,” he said. “We believe that Satan is in regular contact with people here.”

      Berendt alleges in his letter that Satan’s reach – on behalf of Bush – goes even further than the governor’s election dispute. He says Satan is behind failed attempts to recall Republican Secretary of State Sam Reed and Democratic King County Councilman Dow Constantine.

      Need I mention Howard Dean’s behaviour?

    1. You could even replace “Bush” with Satan, and get just as interesting results…other sources (i.e. more Bush-centric ones) will work better, but even this one does:

    1. At $1000 a plate, Rove’s mignons are just too expensive for me.

      Posted by 2dogs on 03/08 at 12:58 PM • #


    1. Where do people get this stuff?  All I ever get in the mail are bills and health-product catalogs.  Those aren’t funny.  Sheesh.

      Posted by RebeccaH on 03/08 at 01:58 PM • #


    1. Looks like PETA needs to work on recalibrating the Self-Righteous Outrage Ray.  And their aim.

      Posted by Achillea on 03/08 at 06:25 PM • #


    1. There’s nothing wrong with calling Republicans ‘mignons’. For years I’ve been referring to Democrats as ‘ringmeats’.

      Posted by Arty on 03/08 at 08:35 PM • #


    1. Rebecca, I never get any good political mail either. I’d attribute this to living in a state which isn’t exactly contentious (Utah) but even back in Chicago I didn’t get much. Of course, Cook County wasn’t very contentious, either…

      Posted by Sonetka on 03/08 at 08:54 PM • #


    1. Well, Paul Berendt was right about one thing, Rove’s mignons definitely did leave tracks, at least for a while.

      Or as someone named Bruce once said, “This is not a whine for drinking, this is a whine for lying down and avoiding.”

      Posted by charles austin on 03/08 at 09:09 PM • #


    1. Or maybe you shouldn’t count your Chicken Little’s before all Rove’s evil plans are hatched.

      Posted by charles austin on 03/08 at 09:12 PM • #


    1. All your steaks are belong to us!

    1. Back in the 1500s King Henri III of France, who was er…Liberace-ish, had “friends” who were referred to as his mignons.  I don’t think that is what the Dems had in mind when they wrote this…thing…up.  At least I hope not.  Not even the Deaniac DNC could be that stupid, could they?  (Ted Kennedy?  OK, Ted Kennedy I’ll grant you could be that stupid, especially just before the DTs kick in.)

      The letter is like the stuff fund-raising groups send out all the time (if perhaps a little over the top even for this genre) hysterical pleas to send money or the world will end: Send us money immediately or the crocodiles will come to eat you, because it’s only our noble efforts that are keeping the crocs away from North Dakota.  Pack and conservative groups use ‘em too.

    1. ROFLMAO!

      Good Lord!  If Rove were responsible for even a tenth of the Great Conspiracies he’s been accused of, he’d be too busy to do anything else!  “Mignon”?????????  LOL!

    1. Trust a Democrat to make a hash of something as simple as this…

  1. I’m sorry that you guys don’t get good political mail, but you aren’t missing much.  Last thing I got was a donation request from the Jimmy Carter foundation.

    I almost sent it in with my angry donation of ZERO dollars and a scrawled note that said THANKS FOR NOTHING DICKHEADS (PS NICE JOB WITH NORTH KOREA JIMMY) but I decided not to.

    Because my poor kitty had the runs that day, and the color brochure was handy for scraping that off of the tile.
