The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner over the weekend saw a face-off between Sheryl Crow and Laurie David versus Karl Rove. The two ladies share a passion for the environment and got into it with the Chief of Staff over the issue of “global warming.” The New York Daily News reports:
David, the wife of churlish “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David, said she and her rock-star pal had hoped Rove might take a “fresh look at the science of global warming” when they met him at the black-tie gala in D.C. But, according to David, Rove “immediately got combative. . . . Throwing a tantrum, Mr. Rove launched into a series of illogical arguments.”
As he headed toward his table, “Sheryl reached out to touch his arm,” David writes on TheHuffingtonPost.com. “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.’ . . . Sheryl promptly reminded him, ‘We are the American people.’ “
Oh snap! Sounds like they were getting ready to throw some bows up in the White House. However, the way Karl tells it, Sheryl “came over to insult me and she succeeded.” I’m seriously disappointed this didn’t end in a slap-fight. But then again, I’m generally disappointed if any and everything doesn’t end in a slap fight. Shit, I wish this blog post would end in a slap fight…
