Boy Wonder and Me
At about 8:15a I waited w/o the usual CP gear, anticipating that Karl Rove might actually have a conversation with me. I stood near the huge potted plants that abut the Fox entrance about 10 feet from the curb. Wearing my black and pink Code Pink baseball shirt and my black jeans, I wondered for about 20 minutes if indeed he had come already. There was one lone cameraman near the Fox door. I waved and told him good morning. I think he was the nice redhead cameraman who greets us every Sunday morning at any or all of the Sunday talk show venues
When I thought I had missed the "Boy Wonder", finally at 8:35 a large black suburban with several radio antenna stopped near the corner. I quickly walked in its direction just as the "turd blossom" got out and approached the sidewalk accompanied by a young blond and conspicuously missing the S.S. Here's how our conversation went:
"Good morning, Mr. Rove. Could we walk and talk?"
"No we may not!" (No soft spot there. I should have brought the mask and sign.) We're already walking and talking.
"Why is that? Are you afraid of the 'Pink Ladies'?"
"No I am not. I've seen enough of you all"
"But where on Capitol Hill? We haven't seen you in Patrick Leahy's committee hearings."
In a very whiney tone he replied, "You've been seeking out my family." At this point he gives me his back and quickly heads toward the Fox Studios.
Following him I from behind I asked, "Mr. Rove, have you ever thought what the world would be like today if you had used your genius as a force for good rather than evil?"
No response. He kept walking towards the Fox doors with blond in tow, redhead cameraman filming all the while.
Great way to start the day. One for all, all for one!!!
