Aly: “Poor Karl Rove! Poor Karl Rove!”

Redux Dave: “Wow. ” Yesterday, FNC contributor Karl Rove‘s faux pas of calling F&FW co-anchor Alisyn CamerotaGretchen [Carlson]” yesterday was characterized as “awkward” by Mediaite and “addled” by Carpe Diem. Seemingly, in response, F&FW producers and co-hosts Aly, Dave Briggs, and Mike Jerrick (fill-in for Clayton Morris) appeared eager to quickly put the incident to bed.

When the second hour of F&FW started with its trio seated on the curvy couch as usual, Aly welcomed guest co-host Mike Jerrick to the show. Subsequently, Dave turned to Aly, deadpanning, “Good to have you back, Gretchen.” Seemingly simulating amusement, Aly chuckled, “Poor Karl Rove! Poor Karl Rove!”

As Mike guffawed, a grinning Dave elaborated, “For those of you that weren’t here watching yesterday, Karl Rove, he called her [Aly] Gretchen.” Offering a rather lame excuse for Rove’s gaffe, Mike interjected, “Well, he can’t see us.” Sympathetically, Aly insisted, “I know! And, also, that’s just a…slip….He knows who I am!”

Then, defending her maladroit “wooer” further, Aly protested, “He does protect me from you [Dave] all of the time. That was his goal to protect me from Dave and Clayton which is a very altruistic, honorable goal, I believe.”

Interjecting, Mike jested, “Yeah. He’s scary! It’s fine, Juliet [Huddy]. It’ll be fine!”

Then, appearing to spoof his response yesterday to Rove’s gaffe, a slightly smiling Dave feigned outrage, arching his eyebrows, tilting his head, and monotoning, “Wow.”

Shaking her head, Aly pointed to Mike, giggling, “Well, nah. Makes sense!”

Nah. But, it was funny. Poor Karl Rove!

    No one else is going to comment on this post, so I might as well. Here are the 4 greatest arguments for Existence of God:

    1. The Ontological Argument- “that which nothing greater can be thought.” St. Anselm. Still the granddaddy of them all.

    2. The Cosmological Argument- “ex nihil, nihil fit” (out of nothing, nothing comes) There must have been a beginning. Further, design demands a designer.

    3. Broncos QB Tim Tebow’s performance vs. the Steelers in the Wild Card playoff game last Sunday. Did you see that game winning pass in OT?

    4. The Teleological Argument- everything in the universe seems to have been designed for a purpose.

    (If New England beats Denver this weekend, then #3 may well go the way of the Scottish Realists!)
