Oh, No They Di'in't!!

Last night Sheryl Crow (singer of girl-pop drinking hits like "All I Wanna Do" and "Every Day Is A Winding Road") and Laurie David, the producer of "An Inconvenient Truth" and wife of "Curb Your Enthusiam's" Larry David (yes, that's right--Laurie and Larry), button-holed Karl Rove at the White House Correspondent's Association dinner on the topic of global warming.

The impromptu discussion was not an amiable one, by accounts from both sides. Laurie David said of Rove that she'd "never had anybody be so rude" (apparently, she missed Cheney). Rove, for his part, said, "She came over to insult me and she succeeded" (well, gosh, Karl, you shouldn't make it so easy).

This probably wasn't the most opportune time to engage a member of the administration on the global warming issue. After all, this is the night of celebration for the White House Correspondents, the biggest group of Republican ass-kissers in Washington, and administration officials are busy unzipping their trousers for the customary fellatio from their media marionettes. They simply have no time to discuss their many shortcomings, and certainly no time for Sheryl Crow and Laurie David. (As much as I admire their chutzpah, I have to wonder why rock stars always end up being our spokespeople. Oh, that's right, I forgot: the media ignores us plebes and seeks out the faces that are "famous," albeit chemically peeled.)

Maybe next time, they should approach with a white flag to precede them, or in this case, a blow-up doll on a stick. (On further consideration, they should probably strap one on, too, for old Karl...)

When visiting Cheney they should wear targets on their backs. Give the old guy a shooting I mean fighting chance.
Why did Rove agree to meet people who he knew would ask difficult questions? Oh I know he is under orders to make anything a hot topic to get peoples minds of the WAR IN IRAQ!!!!

I don't think it was a pre-arranged meeting. Mmes. David and Crow must have KNOWN he'd never agree to that, which is why they ambushed him at the dinner. A pretty surefire way to incur a rude response, but then did we expect anything else? Global warming is a big issue, though, as important as the war, since its effects will be longer-reaching. It's understandable that Rove wouldn't want to discuss yet another item in the catalogue of his and his cronies' failures...
