Sheryl Crow: The "one square" TP debate was all a Rovian plot
Hot Air ^

Posted on 01/29/2008 11:47:28 AM PST by mnehring

Finally, after nearly a year we get to the bottom of the story.

Last spring, you were held up as a parody of environmental correctness when you proposed restricting the use of toilet paper to one square per bathroom visit. What was that about? I think it’s a fantastic and eye-opening example of how the media is operated by political figures, of how Karl Rove was humiliated in the media and how, within 24 hours, he was able to humiliate me and take any sort of credibility away from me.

What are you saying? You think Karl Rove leaked the toilet-paper story to the press after you and Laurie David sparred with him about global warming at the White House correspondents’ dinner? I cannot tie him directly to that leak, but within 24 hours of our exchange, as we were leaving D.C., it was on the CNN ticker tape: “Sheryl Crow has proposed that we legislate toilet paper to one square.”

Did you ever actually suggest that? It was always a joke. It was part of a shtick…”

It’s not the first time Crow has said “one square” was a joke. But it is the first time she has tied it to Rove’s ubiquitous, evil schemes. As usual with these liberal accusations, though, it turns out to be a fantasy. “One square” didn’t originate with Turd Blossom. It originated with an article on the Huffington Post, which was written by none other than Sheryl Crow.

Unless…Rove is such a magnificent you-know-what that he somehow posed as Crow, wrote that post, and then leaked it to CNN. It must be that.

Or Crow is now joking about the plot about the joke.

I’m surprised it took them this long to get to the bottom of this. You would think, the way Rove works, there would have been at least one or two information dumps.

Sheryl Crowe...a vacuous gasbag and a bad singer to boot.
Probably has a smelly behind too, but Id hate to insult all smelly behinds.

Sheryl Crow is just an ugly, nasty person. And I’m not talking about looks.

I figured Rove would target someone, y’know, like, more important maybe.

Hey sheryl... you skank... do you know why your soul mate Lance Armstrong is now making whoopie with Mary Kate Olson instead of making babies with you? Because Mary Kate uses as much toilet paper as she needs to use... she also bathes and does not hang around scroats like laurie david!

/This is par for the course for these imbecilic bald faced lying, frothing at the mouth drunkie/junkie pervo Party of never gtow up 13 year olds.

Yiou hear the laughable lie one of these other “geniuses” came up with just in the lasr rwo days?

Raging at Clinton, over his dirty tricks and racism against Obama, They said, as if they were speaking for all the Dim Party, that they “Were Sick of the Clintons and all the dirty tricks that they used, that they LEARNED FROM THE BUSH ADMIN!”

LOL! Like they learned *any* of their dirty tactics from Bush admin. Like Bill and Hill were just the two swreetest and most lovely and honest people, before they ran into the EEEEEvillll Bush and his :henchmen”.

These people really *are* a bunch of self deluding paranoid imbeciles.

Maybe morons who sell records and appear on tv should stop trying to influence politics. Just because you can sing a song (albeit badly) does not mean you have earned the ear of powerful policy makers.

It’s not the first time Crow has said “one square” was a joke.

Yep, and this isn't the first time I've said,,,,I'M RICH,,,,,doesn't mean it's true, but, keep saying it sheryl, maybe just maybe some airhead out there will believe you.

McCarthy should’ve said that his list of known Communists was just a “joke”. All would have been forgiven. Not.

Then again, Ted Danson admits to lying er using hyperbole to blow the issue of polution in our oceans out of proportion.

I’d like to see Celebrity American Idol where the famous award winners of Hollywood’s movie and music industries stood in front of a 3 member panel of Bush - Cheney - Limbaugh and screamed their lungs out for 3 minutes digging the hole deeper.

“But you don’t understand! It’s all a conspiracy! I’m not the one who’s crazy! THEY are crazy! You’ll see! You’ll see! How can you let the world go on getting warmer? Arrrrrrrghhh!”

Now that you mention it, haven’t heard from brabra S. for a while. Haven’t (thankfully mind you) heard much from her since it was learned she was using enough water to supply Phoenix to do her greenhouses or some equally NONGREEN activity.

I really think Miss Crow has a lot of "issues".

It's the crisis du jour with her:
Handguns
Global Warming
The war
breast cancer

Give it a rest lady, and write some more self absorbed songs.
