Rove jokes after woman shouts about men & women dying, crowd laughs
Sheehan, supporters protest at Karl Rove event

http://www.rawstory.com/showarticle.php?src=http%3A%2F%...

One protester was able to slip inside the ballroom during the dinner but was escorted out after shouting about men and women dying, the Austin American-Statesman reported in its Sunday editions.

"Pat, did you get her check before she left?" Rove quipped to the GOP group's executive director, Pat Robbins, as the crowd of 300 laughed, the newspaper reported.

"I don't question the patriotism of our critics. Many are hardworking public servants who are doing the best they can. Some of them are people looking for a free meal," Rove said, drawing more laughs.

15. Did you have to insult the pig by calling Rove a pig?
"Rove is a sick, cruel pig." I'll take the pig over rove anyday.

3. playing to the crowd ..... Rove knows his audience
big man in front of Texas rich republicans but put him in the
room with a family that just lost their son in Iraq or some of the
millions of people who know that Ohio was won by John Kerry
and see what a big man he is.

I pray I live long enough to see that fat little turd ball get his due.

11. No matter what my political persuasion might be
I can not imagine joking within seconds after someone mentioned people dying. Send Rove on patrol in Iraq and see how much he jokes then.

25. It's really a shame these ignorant freaks
are not put in the places of the poor people in this country and then see just how funny they feel it is , lets see if they can laugh that off .

There has to be a way to get this to happen to these freaks , there are so many of us sitting here with nothing but worry about the next months bills or if we even will have job soon .

These people are sick monsters in the basic sense . We did create them in a way by buying their products and allowing them to steal elections . I would never say we deserve this because we had trust in our system working for us . Yes we have not stayed on the ball and have missed alot . We should have seen something coming however how many imagined it would be anything like this that we have no recourse .

30. Your ass is on the street in a few years - be prepared to live with hate
that you created. You are one of the most hated men in the world.

Don't be surprised if you have to live in your little protective bubble for the rest of your life you fucking disciple of Satan.

33. Death is inconsequential to these assholes
They know they're safe and protected from any form of violent death. No bombers will attack them, no snipers will fire at them and not even critics will be allowed 10 seconds in their presence without being dragged away and beaten.

In fact, they haven't even completely reconciled with themselves that people are actually dying.

It's a number, a statistic, a meaningless numeral on a piece of paper.

Thousands of Americans, domestically and abroad, hundreds of thousands of foreigners.

Another scheduled meeting arranged with another relative of a dead soldier, AFTER they've determined that the parent won't cause any "trouble".

Bombs, missile attacks, torture, executions, rape, destruction of whole cities..... meaningless.

They're not human beings anymore.

34. And why shouldn't they be laughing?
Rove and his little $200+ a plate ontorage have been making a financial killing since the chimp took office. As long as the value of the portfolio and profits keep increasing, all's good in Bushco's little world.

The ends justify the means...even if the means are commiting treason to your country and the killing of innocents in illegal wars.

May they rot in hell...

36. Please don't flame me, but I just don't get it.
What am I missing? I don't find it funny or offensive because I can't make any sense of it. How did he get from critics and patriotism to a free meal? What's the connection? Is it some pop culture reference, because I'm hopelessly ignorant in that area. I finally today asked a friend if she knew anything about a story I keep hearing hearing mentioned several times in passing but haven't read about it in the papers. Did something happen with some snakes on a plane somewhere?

Oh yes I did.

37. Probably he was joking
That the Code Pink protester had snuck into the fundraiser in the hopes of being able to have a plate of whatever swill contributers got for writing a check to listen to Rove.

38. Maybe. Rove, Coulter, Malkin. I don't get it.
There's nothing clever in anything they say. I can sometimes detect when they're trying to be funny -- just look for something really mean. Do these mannequins ever have an original thought? I swear, Coulter's dress on the Today show was so revealing, I could see it was a married man with his hand up her dress === pulling the strings. I'm one of those nerdy engineering types, so I can appreciate offensive humor, but I'm starting to think the people who comprise the fan base of these...un....I don't know what to call them -- pundicrats, Republicants, way over 40 year old virgins, whatever...I'm starting to think the people who comprise the fan base of these Fox News skanks find humor in offense.
