Karl Rove Tells Donna Brazile that She Owes Him Some Fried Chicken

Post By RelatedRelated Post

When speaking about black people or to them in public, two foods you might not want to mention are fried chicken and watermelon.  Karl Rove, being a high-profile member of the GOP, is one of the last people who could get away with such a reference in the public sphere.

Those limits were tested this week when Rove joked with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile on ABC’s This Week.  During the exchange, the two referenced a running bet that they have over who will win elections.  Apparently, the two exchange food whenever one of them loses, which seems friendly enough.

According to RawStory, Rove and Brazile got into a conversation about the failings of the Republican Party and the contributions of Bill Clinton. That’s when Rove made the remark that sent the Twitter-verse into overdrive.

“That was Bill Clinton after Walter Mondale lost, after Jimmy Carter lost,” Brazile said. “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,” Brazile stated. “I watched CPAC, Charles — I mean, Karl… Charles was former friend.”

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

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

“You owe me some fried chicken,” Rove said, with a joking tone.


Of course we can assume that Rove wasn’t seeking to make a racist comment toward Brazile, but he is one of the primary faces of the GOP and considered in many circles to support racist institutions.  So, the reference to fried chicken just doesn’t play out too well in almost any situation.  Maybe he should choose a different food.
