The McCain 2000 allegation

I will not embarrass the editor who left on this article an allegation that Karl Rove had, during the 2000 US Presidential election, started a rumor, of dubious foundation, to the effect that John McCain had fathered an illegitimate child. I will merely cite this article[1] in which Karl Rove specifically denies having any part of such a rumor. The article quotes Rove:

That is absolutely not true, and I take offense....If you have any bit of evidence that anybody connected with the Bush campaign was involved in that, you bring it forward, because it is a reckless charge.

Hey, I'm just writing the facts as I know them. Rove is celebrated for his push-polling and other shrewd tactics. You're free to refute them, of course. Kristkrispies 17:28, 3 July 2007 (EDT)
Still, I cannot and will not accept that last edit as friendly without a hard, trustworthy citation. The laws of libel govern this site, don't forget.--TerryHTalk 17:29, 3 July 2007 (EDT)
I don't deny that it needs a citation, but this site is relatively new and many articles that are entirely factual are yet unsourced. I was not aware of that denial, nor am I fighting the reversion. Kristkrispies 17:32, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

RINO Backers

I'm creating a category to facilitate identification of false conservatives or "RINO Backers", who pay lip service to conservative principles but sometimes oppose the social conservatism. I can't add the relevant category, but perhaps somebody else would like to do it. The category to be added is: Category:Rino backers --TonySidaway 17:06, 7 September 2012 (EDT)

This entry seems to be locked--I had the same inclination. However, I would now like to add that as a result (?) of being a Rino Backer, Rove's superpacs had a 1% success rate. Although typical for some liberal media, they get the "facts" right (e.g. the 1% claim) but the reasoning wrong. See
