KARL ROVE SPEAKS, ACT II






On Monday at an event in Minneapolis, Karl Rove referred to Sen. Joe Biden as a big blowhard doofus.


(Rove must be learning his cutting-edge witticisms from the Grand Poobah of Gasbags, Rush Limbaugh. How else to explain the inventive and creative thrust of that ingenious remark?)



But, if Biden was hurt because Rove called him a "big blowhard doofus" he didn't show it.



On hearing the news, Biden grinned and said "he's a great American."
