One of the strange things in Karl Rove's farewell interview with the Wall Street Journal editorial page -- itself probably in farewell mode with Murdoch coming -- is this:

Yet even with a unified Democratic Party and the war, he argues, [2006] was "a really close election." The GOP lost the Senate by its 3,562 vote margin of defeat in Montana, and in the House the combined margin in the 15 seats that cost control was 85,000 votes.

This is the man whose boss, even on their own dodgy count, was put in the White House in 2000 by 537 votes, or, if you prefer, the 1 vote margin that he had on the Supreme Court.
