Is it still an insult if it's true?
CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time - Blogs from CNN.com: "(CNN) – If Sen. Joe Biden was hurt that Republican operative Karl Rove called him a “big blowhard doofus” at an event in Minneapolis Monday, he didn’t show it.
On hearing the news, Biden grinned and said “he’s a great American.”
The blog Politicker ME reports that at a Maine delegate breakfast at the Republican National Convention, Rove, the so-called “architect” of the Bush administration, called Biden a “big blowhard doofus.” Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, is notorious in Washington for being talkative at Senate hearings."
Actually, to be completely accurate Rove should have called him a "big grinning blowhard doofus."
