Karl Rove Freaks Out


If you hadn't heard the news, the White House Michelin Man went nutso at last Saturday's White House Correspondents Dinner when sultry rock singer Sheryl Crow touched his arm during an exchange on global warming (oh, naturally Mr. Rove is GW denyer - global warming that is; he believes everything the other GW says -- well, actually he writes everything the other GW says). Read the story firsthand at the Huffington Post in a piece by Laurie David and Sheryl herself.

Now if it had been Ms. Crow's ex paramour Lance Armstrong who had touched him, Karlito might have positively swooned...

"In his attempt to dismiss us, Mr. Rove turned to head toward his table, but as soon as he did so, Sheryl reached out to touch his arm. Karl swung around and spat, 'Don't touch me.' How hardened and removed from reality must a person be to refuse to be touched by Sheryl Crow? Unfazed, Sheryl abruptly responded, 'You can't speak to us like that, you work for us.' Karl then quipped, 'I don't work for you, I work for the American people.' To which Sheryl promptly reminded him, 'We are the American people.'"
