Karl Rove Fights, Loses To Hippies, In Beverly Hills

by Jim Newell

Fancy book-author Karl Rove went to Beverly Hills last night to take questions about his very very gay dad. But then Code Pink showed up to make a citizen’s arrest, and Karl had no security! Was he able to beat up these ladies good? Also, someone brings up the Downing Street Memo, which Rove calls a fabrication — just like in 2005! Who goes to these things? [YouTube]

Is it wrong to think it would have been not only awesome but a win-win if the Beverly Hills cops had come in and pepper sprayed both Rove and Code Pink?

Rove told the moronic boy king to start a war because incumbent ever loses a presidential election during a war. He deserves to be in the brig, along with do-war criminals Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld.

Or send them to a dungeon where Democrats are welcome to throw their bags of kitty litter on these monsters’ heads. I’d pay the extra nickel for that joy.

I guess these are the Consequences?

“A pernicious political attack launched by cynical and hypocritical individuals”? Sounds like the George W Bush administration to me.

Jim Demintia March 30, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Just one question Mr. Rove. Is it true that you like to sniff butts?

ManchuCandidate March 30, 2010 at 1:58 pm

No, the retarded hippie ghosts of War Crimes Past.

JMP March 30, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Poor Karl, can’t use the Secret Service to make sure only true believers can come to his events anymore. I’d feel bad for him if he didn’t deserve much worse than that.

Just wish it could have been some non-assholes protesting him instead of Code Pink; although I do like the irony of someone who supports the teabaggers getting pissed that people are trying to shut him up.

Monsieur Grumpe March 30, 2010 at 1:59 pm

I can’t get the yooztoobz to play here but I’m imagining that Karl and the ladies get into a vicious slap fight with some hair pulling. Am I right?

Eric Cheney March 30, 2010 at 1:59 pm

What a disappointing body politic we have in the US, when no one can muster the courage to cover this piece of slime with garbage and feces.

not_very_snarky March 30, 2010 at 2:00 pm

“they came to disrupt the event and I don’t think that’s right…” Hey, wasn’t this les-bot at a Health care rally screaming “DEATH PANELS!!!” “Socialism”!

ArkansasFred March 30, 2010 at 2:01 pm

It’s true! L.A. is a moral sewer that will lead all of the flock astray! Repent, for the reckoning is nigh and the sushi is tasty and easily available.

WadISay March 30, 2010 at 2:03 pm

Rove’s issues with women aren’t ending any time soon.

MarSF March 30, 2010 at 2:03 pm

He should know better than to show his fat, greasy face in California. Well maybe he could hang out in Orange County or Bakersfield but West LA? No way. Fucking Turd.

GreedBusters March 30, 2010 at 2:07 pm

“A pernicious political attack launched by cynical and hypocritical individuals”:

Takes one to know one Mr. Rove……..neener, neener, neener!

Troubledog March 30, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Also, Karl Rove texts while he’s driving.

Monsieur Grumpe March 30, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Code Pink, the other Teabaggers.

rmontcal March 30, 2010 at 2:10 pm

“You know what? If you want to keep interrupting me, you can get the heck outta here.”

Non sequitur much?

WIDTAP March 30, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Karl Who?

Jim Demintia March 30, 2010 at 2:14 pm

[re=544631]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Yeah, but at least they’re hysterical over something actually occurring in reality.

Woodwards Friend March 30, 2010 at 2:14 pm

If al-Qaeda blows up a building with Karl Rove and Code Pink in it, I might consider subscribing to their newsletter.

Mr Blifil March 30, 2010 at 2:21 pm

This bodes very well for Bush’s upcoming book tour.

WickedWitch March 30, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Wow. Tasty lunchtime viewing.

whiterabid March 30, 2010 at 2:23 pm

Did he check out the lesbian strip club while in town?

problemwithcaring March 30, 2010 at 2:23 pm

It’s always chilling to watch something where Code Pink people are the most sympathetic assholes in the room. Let’s never speak of this again.

surfacenoise76 March 30, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Forget the very gay dad. What about the mom who committed suicide? That was in, what, ’81? How’d you managed to disappoint her so much when your life was really just beginning, Karl? Huh?

JMP March 30, 2010 at 2:34 pm

[re=544639]Jim Demintia[/re]: That and we’ve never had members of Congress, or anyone else who’s actually important, encourage them.

Mr Blifil March 30, 2010 at 2:34 pm

[re=544631]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Well you can’t say they don’t do their homework first…”YOU RUINED THE COUNTRY!!11! YOU RUINED IT! YOU RUINED THE COUNTRY>..YOu..YOU…ASS FACE!!1!”

Manos: Hands of Fate March 30, 2010 at 2:34 pm

What’s Matt Yglesias doing roughing up that nice Code Pink lady?

watershed March 30, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Where are the Teabaggers? They don’t trust the government, right?

SayItWithWookies March 30, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Ah, Karl Rove — he definitely deserves the inhumanity, callousness and injustice he’s inflicted on others, only more so. Let’s hope this kick-off to his book tour is only the beginning of a long string of comeuppance.

Mahousu March 30, 2010 at 2:46 pm

I got hypnotized by the dress the KCAL anchorwoman on the left was wearing – especially the way it reflected off the desk – and ended up missing the rest of the clip.

Katydid March 30, 2010 at 2:49 pm

[re=544614]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: What hair?

Isn’t Karl just the precious princess when he whines at :48 “No, no, no, I didn’t say go ahead. You get awaaaay!” slapping at the Code Pink woman’s wrist. I think he’s ascared. Then he runs away.

I hate this expression, but really, Karl, man up. Don’t hit her. Have the guts to talk to her face-to-face, without the bitch slap.

Zadig March 30, 2010 at 2:49 pm

[re=544640]Woodwards Friend[/re]: Hell, I’d start growing out my beard.

proudgrampa March 30, 2010 at 2:51 pm

I hope someone gives it to Karl good and hard.

Fucking asshole.

thefrontpage March 30, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Rove IS a war criminal. Bush II, Rove, Rumsfeld, Rice, Card and several others from the Bush II administration should be tried, convicted and tossed in jail for lying to the American public and getting this country into another stupid, unneeded, wasteful and criminal Vietnam. They should pay for the thousands of lives lost in this travesty. And the money spent on this idiocy? Billions of wasted dollars that could have paid for teachers, police officers, border agents, scientists, education, health, transportation and infrastructure. Rove and all the Bush II crazies should all be tossed in jail. Good for these protesters–good for them. Rove is an asshole, and all of his other psychotic cronies are assholes, too. And these people actually wanting to get books signed by Rove? Morons and idiots.

Oldskool March 30, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Be grateful you’re not in prison Karl, sharing a cell with a weight-lifting pedo who likes chubby little boys.

thefrontpage March 30, 2010 at 2:53 pm

That post, by the way, is not humor, satire, snark or parody. It’s just the truth.

smitallica March 30, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Yes Karl. The Totalitarianism of the Left.

It was the LEFT who kept saying it was treasonous to question a president during wartime, and tapped people’s phones to make sure they loved America.

Go to jail, you fucking scumbag.

Katydid March 30, 2010 at 3:18 pm

Ladies, I’m talking to you. Don’t you just absolutely drool over a man who talks tough and confronts people only when he has the Secret Service protecting him, and he has access to the nuclear codes, or when he’s sitting behind a camera and the confrontee is in another city?

Mmmm mmmm, my DNA and my RNA are a-tingle. I don’t think the rumors that he’d produce a prokaryote is true. In any case, I can’t believe he’s not already taken. Back off ladies, he’s mine.

GOPCrusher March 30, 2010 at 3:18 pm

In a just world, someone is going to show up with a taser and a pair of handcuffs to one of these events. This asshat wasn’t too concerned over people’s First Amendment Rights when we were protesting the Bushyt Holy Crusade Against Islam.

Lazy Media March 30, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Man, a Karl Rove vs. Code Pink throwdown. Who do you freakin’ cheer for in that one? It’s like a Yankees-Georgia Bulldogs Calvinball game. I’m hoping a meteor hits the place.

Limeylizzie March 30, 2010 at 3:26 pm

[re=544810]Katydid[/re]: Oh yes, I am positively moist at the thought of seeing him all naked, pink and limp .

MuahahahahaaaaaaaHAHAHAAAA! YouTube was created for such moments. I wonder if his son and his son’s buddies over at Trinity U here in San Antonio have seen it yet? How delectably embarrassing.

trondant March 30, 2010 at 4:06 pm

[re=544815]Lazy Media[/re]: As an Athens native, I heartily fucking concur with your simile. Not that I have anything against the players, but man – the chance to take out Yankees fans and the Bulldawg Nayshun at the same time? Sometimes fate, or circumstance, dictates that you lose your life for a greater good.

Katydid March 30, 2010 at 4:09 pm

[re=544824]Limeylizzie[/re]: GREEN BALLOONS!

conanneutron March 30, 2010 at 4:31 pm

Amazing that this utterly predictable news story gets posted, and Rove coming face to face with his own “tribute” record in Lancaster, complete with picture… gets overlooked.

oh right! The predictability gives an excuse for the pre-requisite disconnection and snide comments.

Aurelio March 30, 2010 at 4:43 pm

That’s Code Pink Founder and Taliban sympathizer Jodie Evans in the pink hat. Click here for two (2) pics of this treasonous traitoress with her clandestine boss, Barack Hussein Obama.

Berkeley Bear March 30, 2010 at 5:17 pm

[re=544904]Katydid[/re]: I’m assuming LimeLizzie is referring to what would be left of him after we used “enhanced interrogation” on him for about 2 nanoseconds, rather than anything sexual.

I hate Code Pink’s stupid confrontational style, but totalitarians? Really? Ladies in Pink hats, bedazzled shirts and peace symbol earrings as Brownshirts? I’d call him a pussy, but that would just insult cats and vaginas everywhere. Rotten egg fart from the carcass of a rabid dog that’s just been euthanized seems about right.

ShanghaiLil March 30, 2010 at 7:41 pm

Please tell me I’m wrong. Please tell me that I did not just hear Karl Rove complaining about violations of his civil rights. Because really, I’d like to believe that the entire Universe would implode if confront with that degree of irony…

FlipOffResearch March 30, 2010 at 8:19 pm

I saw this on the news this morning as I was getting ready for work, it made my day. I think the architects of Duck Soup II should suffer public humiliation of this sort for the rest of their lives, or until they are thrown in prison.

wildturtlelove March 30, 2010 at 9:14 pm

If only the Code Pink gals had presented themselves as a surprise singing telegram and promised to whisk him away to Voyeur, he would have happily applied the handcuffs himself.

Allyson March 30, 2010 at 10:32 pm

L.A. is a moral sewer that will lead all of the flock astray!
Los Angeles represent!

badmuthagoose March 30, 2010 at 11:55 pm

I just want to say that I was stuck in the waiting room of a VA hospital for 12 hours today and they had CNN on the ENTIRE TIME VERY LOUDLY and I found myself wishing desperately for the snark of Wonkette on stories such as this. That Rick twat was just awful.

libwakman March 31, 2010 at 12:30 am

Hahaha..republicans would NEVER EVER shout down a democrat at an event. The shame of these libtard criminals. The fat lying prick should have at least gotten an atomic wedgy.

imissopus March 31, 2010 at 1:01 am

Between this and David Plouffe goading him into a near-meltdown on one of the Sunday shows a couple of weeks ago, I wonder if ol’ Karl is coming unglued. Which would be awesome. I just hope video is rolling when he has his final psychotic break.

Hello Sunshine March 31, 2010 at 3:22 am

Next they’ll be cutting the propane line on his backyard BBQ.
