Awwwwww. Did widdle Turdbwossom get picked on?

Note to a certain genius at the University of Iowa: Is this scumbag really worth 40 grand?

At one point during the speech, Rove reportedly lashed out at some of the students, saying, "You got a chance to ask your questions later and make your stupid statements, let me make mine."

Wait a sec. Did Turdblossom say he was going to make a stupid statement? No wonder they weren't impressed with him.

More from the Des Moines Register.

By the time Karl Rove took the stage at the University of Iowa Sunday, groups from around eastern Iowa had been protesting his presence for two hours.

The protesters staged a mock trial for President Bush's former top adviser inside the U of I's student union and draped the side of a nearby parking ramp with a 60-foot anti-Rove banner that police quickly removed.

As soon as Rove entered the room, boos, shouts of "traitor" and "war criminal," and occasional cheers emanated from the roughly 900 audience members - and lasted the entire hour and a half in which Rove took questions.

Turdblossom isn't exactly Mr. Popularity over there, is he? And yes, I know Columbia invited Iran's President Psycho to speak on campus, just in case some wingnut brings that up. People booed and protested him, too.

Keep in mind, this lecture took place in IOWA. Zee Heartland. Zee midst of zee Red-State America. Or at least it was. Not anymore.

Come to think of it, maybe there was an advantage to inviting Zee Turdblossom--so he could see for himself how his dream of near-permanent GOP majority has totally fizzled.

P.S. Denny Hastert's seat was won by a Democrat in a special election. It's the first time a Democrat has held the IL-14 congressional seat since the 1950s. Suck on it, Karl.
