Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight, Karl Rove's memoir, was published in March. It got a lot of attention (as you'd expect) and was reviewed in hundreds of venues.

Given this, I'm kind of amazed that David Bromwich is the first reviewer to flag this passage from chapter 12:

"The ugliness of the image and diction alike betrays a mental lowness," writes Bromwich. Which is why, I assume, The Wall Street Journal gave him a column.
