Kids, read your Beowulf. Please. It’s getting embarassing. This from a recent Karl Rove interview on Fox News (via Salon):
“They’ll keep after me,” Rove said of the Democrats. “Let’s face it. I mean, I’m a myth, and they’re — you know, I’m Beowulf. You know, I’m Grendel. I don’t know who I am. But they’re after me.”
UPDATE: As soon as I posted this, I saw this at Quillblog*, a list of other characters Rove could compare himself to.
*Which, sadly, is not a blog devoted to porcupines.
