Karl Rove Angry At FOX & Friends And Calls Them "Pathetic" For Bringing Up Code Pink Trying To Arrest Him

It seems Code Pink really got under Karl Rove's skin because he lashed out at FOX & Friends for bringing up the issue to him.

Fox News contributor Karl Rove directed some unfriendly fire at the hosts of "Fox and Friends" this weekend when the show's anchors decided to ask Rove to respond to protesters who disrupted the former top Bush adviser's book tour.

"This is sad, you people are recycling stuff that happened three to four weeks ago, this is a small blemish on what was a great trip," Rove said when asked about members of the group Code Pink who showed up at a March 30 book signing in Beverly Hills, Calif., called Rove a "war criminal" and brandished handcuffs.

"It was a blemish," he insisted, adding that there were no such incidents at other stops on his book tour.

"Please don't paint this as much a sign of anything," he continued. "These are sort of sad and pathetic people ... Can you imagine being some kind of nut wandering around with handcuffs? Let's not give them any more attention."

The Code Pink protesters have proven to be a thorn in Rove's side at several stops on the tour to promote his book "Courage and Consequence."

Wow, Rove bashing his own people. Hey Karl. It was news and you have to deal with it. It's not Jodie Evan's fault that Rove served under Bush when he attacked a country that didn't attack us and lies were used to sell America on a war with Iraq after 9/11. America is still angry about this issue, but Rove would like nothing more than to sweep it under the rug with all the other deceptions he used during the Bush administration.
