Karl Rove, who had a public meltdown during Fox News coverage of the presidential election results last November, joked during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” to Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, “You owe me some fried chicken.” It would have been harmless, I guess, but he had to throw in the Southern drawl. Donna Brazile is from Louisiana. Here’s the exchange:

“That was Bill Clinton after Walter Mondale lost, after Jimmy Carter lost,” Brazile pointed out. “We had a dynamic governor who was reform minded, who took those reform issues and brought them into the national forefront. He really helped recharge the Democratic Party.”

“But you know, the Republican Party is out to lunch,” she added, turning to Rove. “I watched CPAC, Charles — I mean, Karl… Charles was former friend.”

“I thought I was a current friend,” Rove laughed.

“You’re always a friend,” Brazile replied. “But you owe me some chili.”

Donna Brazile didn’t seem offended by the stereotypical comment, reminded Karl Rove that she had “saved [his life from] malaria once.” The comment had liberal blogs on fire on Twitter.
