Don't Touch me Sheryl Crow

Laurie David of www.globalwarming.org and Sheryl Crow have been on a nation-wide bus tour to bring attention to the issue of global warming. Last week at the White House Correspondents Dinner, they tried to talk to Karl Rove:
We asked Mr.
Rove if he would consider taking a fresh look at the science of global warming.
Much to our dismay, he immediately got combative. And it went downhill from
there.

Like a spoiled child throwing a tantrum, Mr. Rove launched
into a series of illogical arguments regarding China not doing enough thus
neither should we. (Since when do we follow China's lead?)

In his
attempt to dismiss us, Mr. Rove turned to head toward his table, but as soon as
he did so, Sheryl reached out to touch his arm. Karl swung around and spat,
"Don't touch me." How hardened and removed from reality must a person be to
refuse to be touched by Sheryl Crow? Unfazed, Sheryl abruptly responded, "You
can't speak to us like that, you work for us." Karl then quipped, "I don't work
for you, I work for the American people." To which Sheryl promptly reminded him,
"We are the American people."
