Biden Grins at Rove's 'Doofus' Diss
Either Joe Biden is practicing a kinder, gentler form of campaign-trail politics or Karl Rove’s got another thing coming … just not right this very moment. On Tuesday, after hearing that Karl Rove called him a “big blowhard doofus” at the RNC the previous day, Biden just had a smile and a patriotic compliment for Bush’s one-time sidekick.
CNN’s Political Ticker:
On hearing the news, Biden grinned and said “he’s a great American.”
The blog Politicker ME reports that at a Maine delegate breakfast at the Republican National Convention, Rove, the so-called “architect” of the Bush administration, called Biden a “big blowhard doofus.” Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, is notorious in Washington for being talkative at Senate hearings.
