Karl Rove recently addressed a crowd at the University of Iowa. Rove who was reported to have receive $40,000 for his speech, got a less than warm response. At one point Rove confronted his hecklers saying "You got a chance to ask your questions later and make your stupid statements, let me make mine."
The University of Iowa probably hoped it would get more than Rove's stupid statements for its 40 grand. Yet, given the cost turd blossom's work has inflicted upon the country over the past decade, the UI probably feels it got off easy.
