Karl Roves Calls Joe Biden A "Big Fat Doofus"

Karl Roves Calls Joe Biden A "Big Fat Doofus"

By Robert Paul Reyes

White House adviser, Karl Rove, called Sen. Joe Biden a "big fat doofus." This is the textbook example of the pot calling the kettle black. Who can forget Rove`s performance at The Radio and Television Correspondents dinner; I still can`t get the antics of "MC Rove" out of my mind.

Asked what he thought of Rove`s inartful remarks, the big lug launched into a 30-minute monologue about the importance of having a sense of humor.

Actually, Biden simply grinned and said of his nemesis, "he`s a great American." Really, I swear, that`s all he said.

Name calling may have a place in the sandlot, but politicians should be civil to one another. I commend Biden for responding with class, and resisting the temptation to stoop down to Rove`s level.

In all honesty, with his loopy grin, Biden does look like a "big fat doofus", but he`s a great counter-balance to the eloquent and sophisticated Obama. Most voters identify with the big fat doofus more than they do with Obama.

Rove is just upset that it looks all but certain that the Messiah and his goofy sidekick will soon take over the White House.
