During a speech Friday night at George Washington University, Karl Rove was asked by a student "Why is it you think you evoke such a visceral reaction in many of your detractors? What exactly do you think this says that you generate not so much necessarily a 'maybe the policies you advocate are wrong response' so much as 'you're a fundamentally bad human being as a result of them'?"
Rove said, "First of all, the tail and the horns are retractable. I don't know. Look, I'm a myth. I mean, I'm like Grendel of Beowulf. I'm not often seen but people talk about me a lot."
What gets me is many of the students seemed to be supporters of Rove. There were protesters, but when they were escorted out, others shouted "Tase 'em."
