Spin this, please

Karl Rove usually has an answer for everything. Even if it's a stupid one.

Thus, I'd love to see his response after The Washington Monthly dug up this bit of gold from his recent appearance on "Face The Nation." Rove said Obama's choice for veep was going to be "intensely political choice, not a governing choice," and used Virginia Governor Tim Kaine as an example:
"With all due respect again to Governor Kaine, he's been a governor for three years, he's been able but undistinguished," Rove said. "I don't think people could really name a big, important thing that he's done. He was mayor of the 105th largest city in America."

Of course, Sarah Palin was mayor of a city that isn't even one of the 10 largest in Alaska and was governor there for fewer than two years - she hadn't even taken office when McCain started his campaign.

Could you clear up that issue about qualifications again, Karl?
