Mr. Rove was invited to speak to the California Republican Party convention, both publicly and behind closed doors. He urged them to go back to republican core values, to not pander re some of the issues the party has picked up along the way [NB: ...that he has used to such effect] and to diversify their message and their base. The Tea Party, in red shirts, sat in the back and looked askance. And they had some choice words for him and the party.
