This is really rich, coming out of the mouth of Karl Rove: "It does conservatives little good to support candidates who, at the end of the day, while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters are looking for." Does he even listen to what comes out of his lie-hole?

Although it is telling that he decided (and make no mistake, Karl Rove is nothing if not deliberate) to use the word "evince". "Evince" means "to constitute outward evidence of" or "to display clearly". Not possess rectitude, truthfulness, sincerity, and character, but to display those admirable characteristics. Well played.
