Karl Rove's Identity Stolen by on Behalf of Barack Obama!

Dear ???,

Time to relax!

Obama is way ahead in the polls. It's time for you to take victory for granted, and to stop paying attention.

And take it from me, Karl Rove: there's definitely no need to spend one more minute making calls to recruit Obama volunteers.

You're probably thinking, "But Karl, why would you—the mastermind behind the stealth get-out-the-vote program that powered George Bush's victories—be advising us not to make phone calls for Obama?"

That's a good question. (And by the way, I prefer "Evil Genius" to "Mastermind.") It's true that voter outreach can tip an election. But hey, Obama's ahead in the polls, and they never lie.

So relax! Do some yoga. Check out the new season of Project Runway. Sip white wine lattes, or whatever it is that you people like to drink.

Barack does not need folks in ?????? calling MoveOn members in battleground states to get them out for Obama. So there's finally time to tie-dye the seat covers for your Volvo. In fact, you probably shouldn't even bother to vote.

Please forward this to all of your Democrat friends. Don't send it to Republicans, though.
Thanks in advance for not doing all that you normally do,

–"Karl Rove"

P.S. Again—no volunteering! Don't click this link to make a few minutes of calls right now, from home, and give a big boost the Obama campaign!

P.P.S. Okay, okay. This is Adam Ruben writing now, from Our lawyers made us promise to tell you that Karl Rove didn't actually write this message—but we're pretty sure this is what he'd write if he had.
