Rockin the Mic, it's MC Rove!

He likes to tear the heads off small animals and he's a practicing philatelist (it sounds dirtier than it is), but there's plenty we don't know about Karl Rove. Or should I say MC Rove? Bush's phone tapping, attorney firing, pro-torturing Chief of Staff had a chance to rock it on the mic at the 2007 Radio-Television Correspondents Dinner,* and rock it he did!

Bear with the clip. The rapping doesn't stat until 5:42, but MC Rove is ALWAYS worth waiting for. If only we could get him on the White Rapper Show... he'd be the William Hung of hip-hop world.

*The Correspondents Dinner is the same annual event where Stephen Colbert last year gave such an scathing, dead-on, deadly funny speech that it will probably go down in history as one of the strongest critiques of George W. Bush's administration. How unsurprising that in a room full of journalists only the comedian had the cojones to speak the truth.
