Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove, during a speech at George Washington University last night, was interrupted by a group holding up a sign reading "War Criminal."

Amid booing and clapping in the crowd, members can be heard yelling "Tase 'em!" as the protesters are escorted out.

"Why is it that you think you evoke such a visceral reaction in many of your detractors?" asks one audience member, curious to know how said detractors would make a determination that Rove was a "fundamentally bad human being" as a result of his policy decisions.

"Look," Rove responds, "first of all, the tail and the horns are retractable...Look: I'm a myth! I mean, I'm like Grendel of Beowulf; I'm not often seen but people talk about me a lot. I don't know."

Video of the speech is embedded below. More can be read at Think Progress.
