The "evil genius" aspect of Rove's infamy may indeed annoy liberals, but it seems more likely that most of them hate Rove because they think his politics has been profoundly damaging to the country and that, in the pursuit of electoral success, he has played upon fear and bigotry and that, perhaps most importantly, he used 9/11 as a political battering ram to cast Democrats as unpatriotic pansies for daring to have a different political viewpoint.
