The title of this potent if hardly evenhanded documentary refers to Karl Rove, adviser to both Bush presidents. Filmmakers Joseph Mealey and Michael Paradies Shoob trace Rove's rise from school debating champ to attack dog who allegedly masterminded smears against Texas Gov. Ann Richards and senators John McCain and Max Cleland, among others. Rove isn't blamed for the John Kerry Swift-boat fuss, but you feel he would be if the film hadn't already been completed. Propaganda? You bet. But a scary and persuasive case is made.
