Washington’s own NBC4 reports:
White House Advisor Karl Rove was the target of a protest on the American University campus Tuesday night, News4 reported.
Rove was on the campus to talk to the College Republicans, but when he got outside more than a dozen students began throwing things at him and at his car, an American University spokesperson said.
The students then got on the ground and laid down in front of his car as a protest.
The students said security officials picked them up and carried them away so Rove could leave.
Josh Goodman, an AU junior, said other students kicked the car “and tried to stop it as best as they could.”
He said the car, with Rove in the back seat, left after those in front of it “were all pulled away.”
Goodman estimated that the incident lasted for “close to five full minutes,” but Maralee Csellar, AU’s acting head of public relations, said the delay amounted to a minute or two. She said there were 12 to 15 protesters.
Goodman said students went to the Ward Circle building where Rove spoke to make a “citizen’s arrest” of the presidential adviser. He said the students claimed they had compiled evidence indicating that Rove had violated what they say is a presidential records act stipulating that all presidential e-mail be recorded on White House servers.

Bushies will be lifelong pariahs, unable to show their faces in public in this country.
