Rove to Sheryl Crow: “Don’t touch me.”

Sheryl Crow goes one-on-one (well, two-on-one) with Carl Rove. It happened last night at the White House Correspondents Dinner:

Rover, Crow and David“In his attempt to dismiss us, Mr. Rove turned to head toward his table, but as soon as he did so, Sheryl reached out to touch his arm. Karl swung around and spat, “Don’t touch me.” How hardened and removed from reality must a person be to refuse to be touched by Sheryl Crow? Unfazed, Sheryl abruptly responded, “You can’t speak to us like that, you work for us.” Karl then quipped, “I don’t work for you, I work for the American people.” To which Sheryl promptly reminded him, “We are the American people.”

Sheryl Crow and environmental activist Laurie David are wrapping up an 11-date “Stop Global Warming College Tour” aimed at inspiring students to become part of the movement.

  1. Just goes to confirm what we’ve thought about Rove, Bush and Company all along: they don’t get it. Any of it. Courtesy, diplomacy, collaboration, environmental stewardship… all of it.

  2. It probably was no fun when it happened. But by now, Thelma and Louise must realize that Rove has provided a massive amount of publicity for their cause. It’s all over the news wires. And by the way, like my guy says: telling Sheryl Crow to keep her hands to herself… how bizarre.
