So not are they rude, but they're also idiots.... do the two go together?

First they rudely attack Karl Rove at the White House Correspondent's Dinner, beseeching him to 'take a new look at global warming'. Look, I'm no fan of Rove, but as my mother taught me, and as these ladies' mothers must not have bothered to pass on to them, there is a time and a place for everything... and going to an event such as the correspondent's dinner and to start pushing one's agenda on someone everybody knows is not favorably inclined is the dictionary definition of rude and inappropriate.

I doubt that even such self-centered people as these two really thought Rove was going to sit back in his chair and listen in rapture to their oh-so-wonderful ideas. No, I am sure they approached him expecting a reaction such as they received (something along the lines of 'get out of face'), figuring they could get a few chuckles to share with their equally globally minded friends back in LA.

I do have to admit I don't really expect much from Laurie David, whose sole achievement in life seems to have been marrying someone friendly with a guy named Seinfeld, and who seems to have done nothing on her own that ought to make anyone sit up and take note of what she is saying... unless she is talking about marrying well.

As far as the idiot component, one needs to look no further than Sheryl Crow's proclamation that "a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting".

On how many levels of stupid is this? Is she going to pop in and inspect one's flushing? Of all the things that contribute to global warming, does she really think that using toilet paper is that high on the list?

I once felt sort of sorry for her, getting dumped by Lance Armstrong. I thought he was a bit of a cad, the way it was described. Now I'm guessing he just had a bit too much of her lunacy. One can only hang around stupid people for only so long before the stupidity starts rubbing off.
