A Rebel Without A Pause - Shut 'Em Down!
Karl Rove: Almost Arrested!
A upper class white woman, raging against the machine...who the fuck knew? In SF yesterday, an unnamed woman tried to arrest Karl Rove while he was at the annual convention of the Mortgage Bankers' Association. He's sitting there, minding his own business, looking like a smug fuck, shooting the shit with former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell.
Then, DRAMA AT HIGH NOON! This shit was more entertaining that the week in the NFL! (Which I plan on recapping my amusement sometime this week, including my unholy glee at the possibility that Tom Brady may not play for 2 years. HA!)
Anyway up on the stage walks this random white lady, asking why there wasn't a woman on the panel, and then looking like she was going to introduce herself and shake hands, and out of NOWHERE, she busted out some handcuffs and tried to arrest Rove for treason.
Check it out here.
I don't know if this happened at the beginning or the end of the debate, but I would have done the same if not more if it were afterward. They're talking about the current credit crisis and the highlights of the debate were:
- Rove blaming everything on the Democrats, including deregulation that led to the subprime mortgage mess. "So the regulators in 2005 were the Republicans and the de-regulators, the anti-regulators, the let-them-do-anything-they-want crowd, were all Democrats, with all due respect," said Rove. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT MY ASS!
- Rove claiming that the Democrats were being too hardcore in their attacks on John McCain. He said: "Yesterday John Kerry your nominee of your party in 2004, stands up and said if John McCain was asked the question of whether he wears boxers or briefs his answer would be Depends. I think that is pretty much under the table and pretty nasty."
Mitchell looked like he wanted to say "Lolwut" to Rove, but instead he only said: "I have to say I feel like Dorothy in the Land of Oz, hearing you lecture about negative campaigning."
YOU TELL 'EM MR. MITCHELL!
