The Democrat Obsession with Karl Rove

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 1, 2007

Due to Karl Rove’s visit this past weekend, I thought it apropos to reprint this:

The showdown at the White House Correspondents’ dinner was more emotional and lasted longer than was first reported. It started when Laurie David introduced herself to Karl Rove. He knew who she was–Hollywood’s leading Bush-hater and a producer of An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s film on global warming. David quickly launched into a harangue. President Bush has done nothing on global warming, she said. Rove answered that Bush has funded more research on the subject than any president. That’s worthless, David responded. All the scientific questions have been answered, she insisted. Now’s the time for action! Rove cited the recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which projects a modest rise in sea level of 7 to 23 inches over the next century. David told Rove he was wrong. We’ve had the hottest summer and winter ever, she said, plus extreme weather events. The president needs to talk to real global warming experts. Rove said he already does. “Would you like me to give you a list?” he asked. She didn’t. You don’t have anybody who understands the seriousness of the issue talking to the president, David said. Yes, we do, Rove said, mentioning the president’s science adviser, Dr. John Marburger.

That’s when the debate got more heated and more physical. Sheryl Crow, the singer, suddenly appeared. Without introducing herself, she demanded that Rove tell her how many corporations were financing Marburger’s research. Rove responded that Marburger has a long and distinguished academic record. David said Bush must lead on
global warming and America must emulate China–China!–by signing the Kyoto Protocol. (China indeed signed, but didn’t agree to curb greenhouse gases.)
