What the? Are puppies and meerkats next? Is Karl Rove planning on taking Michael Vick with him? The recently departed political adviser to President Bush had his vacation plans revealed by a columnist at the Washington Post and is now taking heat from animal activists for plans to hunt doves during the Labor Day holiday. The president of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, faxed a letter to Rove that said the following,
“Dear Mr. Rove,” Newkirk wrote. “From your frequent hunting trips to your bizarre little rap at the Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association dinner [where Rove joked that he liked to "tear the tops off of small animals"], it is clear that you lack the ability to empathize with other living beings. You consistently prove that you care less about animal welfare than Alberto Gonzales cares about habeas corpus.”
Ouch. As a parting shot, Newkirk also suggested that Rove bring along Deadeye Dick Cheney to help with aiming. Nice. Hit the jump for more.
