I almost hate to post about this because I don’t want to continue the discussion… so just consider this a vent of a quasi-political nature.
According to the Huffington Post article from Crow and Laurie David, they were simply being kind, level-headed global warming teachers. Just a few of their take on how nice they were being:
"We felt compelled to remind him that the research is done and the results are in (www.IPCC.ch)."
"We asked Mr. Rove if he would consider taking a fresh look at the science of global warming."
Kind words. I’m sure that’s exactly how it happened. It reminds me of that guy who finds "religion" of some sort, and starts proselytizing forcefully. You know that guy – he’s not much fun to be around, and tends to do more damage to his cause than he helps.
Here’s the real kicker:
As someone who’s been a (very very) minor celebrity, I completely understand how personal space violation can get under your skin. I can’t possibly imagine how little space Rove has for himself. Just because someone’s (theoretically) hot doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to be irritated when people get all up in your grille. Imagine the furor if some fan tried to touch Crow – she’d have her security team physically remove them, I’m sure.
OK, rant over. Thanks for listening. Let’s all drop this foolish story and get back to the real news of the day: Anna Nicole Smith’s favorite color.
