“Are liberal Democrats less likely to have social lives than conservatives? According to Karl Rove, the answer to that question is yes,” Matthew Sheffield reports for NewsBusters. “The Republican guru all but made that argument explaining why he thought liberals are more likely to be on the web than conservatives.”
Sheffield reports, “‘I hate to sound sort of diffident about it but it strikes me that a lot of people on the right have got active lives and are doing other things,’ Rove said. ‘The idea of spending a lot of time on the internet and taking their talents and displaying them there is not something [conservatives] really do.'”
Sheffield conducts a wide-ranging interview with Rove, even touching on Apple iPhone and MacBook Air:
Sheffield: Last time I saw you, you’d just gotten an iPhone. How’s that working out for you?
Rove: I love it. My life has changed. I have a shred of coolness. I’ve got my 3,500 people in my addressbook on the phone, I can sync my calendar. I keep track of my modest little stock investments. I can check the weather of my house in Washington, my house in Florida, my boy at school, my hunt-lease in south Texas. I can surf the web, I’m just–I get part of my email there. I mean it is just shocking how much better, how much more productive I am. I no longer carry around a giant address book, if I don’t have my calendar close at hand, I can quickly check it out of my– I don’t have to carry, I used to carry several notecards, now it’s just as easy to scribble on my little notepad, I can take photographs and forward them on immediately, it’s just remarkable.
Sheffield: All right. Well it sounds like Steve Jobs should call you up as a spokesman.
Rove: There we go, there we go. And not only that, I also have the Mac Book Air which is really cool. Even my wife is jealous of my MacBook Air.
Sheffield: Ahh, well it sounds like you’ll have to get her one then.
Rove: No I don’t, no I don’t. I’m the only cool one in the family with a MacBook Air.
