Karl Rove Gets Heated With Laurie David and Sheryl Crow Over Global Warming

On the eve of Earth Day, Laurie David and Sheryl Crow decided to take their case of Global Warming to the top. While at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night, the two were introduced to Karl Rove. What transpired was nothing less than lunacy and venom from the White House adviser. I present to you a snippet of David’s account in her own words,

“We asked Mr. Rove if he would consider taking a fresh look at the science of global warming. Much to our dismay, he immediately got combative. And it went downhill from there. We reminded the senior White House advisor that the US leads the world in global warming pollution and we are doing the least about it. Anger flaring, Mr. Rove immediately regurgitated the official Administration position on global warming which is that the US spends more on researching the causes than any other country.

We felt compelled to remind him that the research is done and the results are in (www.IPCC.ch). Mr. Rove exploded with even more venom. Like a spoiled child throwing a tantrum, Mr. Rove launched into a series of illogical arguments regarding China not doing enough thus neither should we. (Since when do we follow China’s lead?)

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? Unphased, 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.'”

What a pompous ass. Instead of an intelligent conversation, we found an individual suddenly stuck in a corner having to answer some hard questions. Poor little Rove. His manners and “representation” are about as good as his rapping.

Hit the jump for more of Laurie’s impressions of the evening…
