STEPHANOPOULOS: That was Bill Clinton after Dukakis's loss in '88.
BRAZILE: That was Bill Clinton after Walter Mondale lost, after Jimmy Carter lost. We had a dynamic governor who was reform minded, who took those reform issues and brought them into the national forefront. He really helped recharge the Democratic Party.
But, you know, the Republican Party is out to lunch. I watched CPAC Charl -- I mean Karl.
BRAZILE: Charles was a former friend.
ROVE: I thought I was a current friend.
BRAZILE: But you're always a friend, but you owe me some chili.
ROVE: But you owe me some fried chicken.

I love fried chicken! No joke either!
The GOP-e WANTS to loose. I believe they just the “relief valve” party to give the illusion of choice. We need a new party.
What’s that they say?
“We need to vet these guys better so they don’t run around saying stupid crap and making us look bad.”
Absolutely. The purpose of the GOP is to run interference and ensure future Democrat victories.
Typical hypocrisy by Tokyo Rove. And he’s too stupid and arrogant to understand that he shouldn’t be making fried chicken jokes to a black democrat on national tv. I bet he’ll blame the tea party for his joke.
Karl Rove needs to vet himself.
What kind of person makes fried chicken jokes to black democrats on national TV?
Yeah, Rove is no better than anyone he puts down.
I’ve learned to control the knee jerk reactions. Did anyone bother to think that maybe they bet a bowl of chili vs. fried chicken dinner during a previous conversation and this is a personal joke between the two?
Unless Brazille, Rev. Al and the rest of the African Am. cabal in this country makes a big deal out of this, then it might just a personal joke between the two of them. We’ll see.
Wow. Joking the a black person likes fried chicken is like joking than Italian likes spaghetti or and Irishman likes beer. Oh, the horror!
When I was a kid, everyone made fun of every other ethnic group...and nobody cared (sticks and stones may break my bones...) Now everyone wants to craw up in to a fetal position and cry when they here something they think someone will perceive to be “offensive.” What has happened to America?
” he shouldnt be making fried chicken jokes to a black democrat on national tv”
I completely agree. They never learn to control their mouths do they?
In fairness, Donna has joked (?) herself about preferring fried chicken over Chick-fil-a. What she really nneeds is to take that up with her health provider and get back with the president on why her premium rates are increasing. lol
Did you say tokoy rove? www.TokyoRove.com
That’s what I read into it. It sounds like a conversation they previously had.
P.S. I still hate Rove
I’ve never heard a Tea Party candidate make a fried chicken joke to a black democrat on national TV. I guess only Tokyo Rove and the RNC/GOP establishment can do such a thing and it’s okay by them.
Sorry, but no. Rove has to be aware that he was speaking on a national forum, and that such a reference would be perceived the wrong way. If it was a personal joke, he should have been aware to keep it personal and off camera.
only Democrats are allowed to be so politically incorrect
Listen hes a nice person, hes very articulate, ... but he couldnt sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.
Donna the the First Mooch and their demographic are the Number 1 fattest of the Fatties according to the CDC
Life according to the RNC/GOP-e:
Tone deaf fried chicken jokes by Tea Party candidates = BAD
Tone dead fried chick jokes by Karl Rove = GOOD
Rove is an idiot. He’s doing nothing to attract people into
the Republican Party. If anything, he’lll drive prospects
I wish Brazille was on our side.
I'm of the opinion that Rove is a deep-plant liberal mole, intended to wreck the Republican party.
Karl Rove Thinks There Could Be A GOP Sea Change On Gay Marriage By The Next Election
Brett LoGiurato |
We’ll know for sure if he shows up on Hannity in blackface.
Donna Brazile is from Louisiana. If there was some sort of a Texas-Louisiana rivalry thing going on, Rove would have said “You owe me some gumbo” instead.
RNC to spend $10 million on minority outreach
It appears Karl Rove kicked off the RNC campaign this morning on ABC.
fried chicken??..not too bad...but if he’d said watermelon we could have had rioting in the streets!.....Whole neighborhoods left smoldering.....and if u tried to put it out with “water”...it would be perceived as racist code words
Next up...a watermelon eating contest, followed up by a soft shoe dance off.
We’re totally going to get the black vote now.
You never heard of Popeye’s? Fried chicken in the South is not an ethnic food, it’s a regional food. Not that I’m defending Rove but this appears to be political correctness to an extreme.
Dinner time and I can’t decide between fried chicken and fried catfish but I know I’ll pray to Jesus and have sweet tea.
Reince Priebus’ and Karl Rove’s $10 million minority outreach campaign is off to a great start. Remember, they know better than us about how to attract the black vote to the GOP.
I’ve seen Rove in Philly hanging on the corner of Walnut and Broad Street. Rove keeps it real.
“will not let the white boys win in this election.” — Donna Brazile, Al Gore’s Campaign Manager on the 2000 election
Donna Brazile will give Tokyo Rove a pass on his “joke”. The Democrats need him.
Purpose of GOP.
1. To keep the GOP-elite running (or blocking) things.
2. To keep a lid on the Tea Party and conservative folks who are young pups who do actually wnat to change things.
3. To provide cover for the democrats, as they are smart enough to understand incrementalism, the dialectic, and the delphi technique.
It is all sick. Real change cannot be done with these people. And by real change I mean a small federal government, restrained by the limits of the Constitution. No executive orders that become LAW, they are only to be directives only applicable to specific executive branch employees. no imagining up or ignoring the constitution.
Who elected Rove conservative Pope? He is not helping our cause.....
Probably right. What I find disturbing is that he is close friends with her. Like Hannity being good friends with all these commies that would put us in camps without a thought.
Watch out, Tokyo. You may find yourself singing the Chicken Blues
I'm no fan of Rove, but are we now to avoid all references to "fried chicken" when we speak to black people? Do you understand the ramifications of bowing to the politically-correct culture?
And do you not understand that conservatives [or those labeled conservative by the MSM] will never win no matter how much they kow-tow?
Stop worrying about this kind of crap.
I never said that Rove isn’t an idiot .
