New York Times Grand Inquisitor Deborah Solomon has her way with Karl Rove this week, and naturally the interview concludes with Rove in hysterics and offering to send Solomon a transcription of all the ways that she hurt him, irrecoverably. "You’re the one who hurt my feelings by saying you didn’t trust me," Rove said, exemplifying the bizarre lows into which the interview delves.


Before that, she asks him, hypothetically, if he has any words of advice for Bush. Rove, a twelve year old girl, responds that he's better friends with Bush than Solomon is, and if he wanted to say something to him he just would, okay, he doesn't need her to act like their friendship has anything to do with her.

The most revealing admission by Rove is a throwaway line in which he displays an almost maternal instinct to conceal details about his dumb stamp collection, which no one cared about in the first place until he brought it up out of nowhere. Observe:

Are you going to send [Obama] a little note congratulating him?

I already have. I sent it to his office. I sent him a handwritten note with funny stamps on the outside.

What kind of funny stamps?

Stamps.

It should be noted that this isn't the first time Karl Rove's filthy stamp fetish has announced itself unto the world. In a 2006 Vanity Fair profile, Todd Purdam reported that a letter sent by Rove was "plastered with a hodgepodge of vintage stamps from his collection, including an eight-center with a stylized image of a bobsled, commemorating the Sapporo Olympics, in 1972."

What is wrong with this deviant?

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
