White House chief political strategist Karl Rove threw a hissy fit when protesters targeted his house, calling the Secret Service.

According to the Washington Post, one of the organizers, Emira Palacios:

said that Rove was "very upset" and was "yelling in our faces" and that Rove told them "he hoped we were proud to make his 14-year-old and 10-year-old cry."

A White House spokesman said one of the children was a neighbor.

Palacios, trembling and in tears herself, said, "He is very offended because we dared to come here. We dared to come here because he dared to ignore us. I'm sorry we disturbed his children, but our children are disturbed every day.

"He also said, 'Don't ever dare to come back,' " Palacios said. "We will, if he continues to ignore us."

Known for race-baiting politics, scurrilous attacks on political opponents and one of the prime suspects in leaking the name of a CIA operative to journalists to discredit a Bush critic, Rove knows unfair.

Poor little guy.
