Karl Rove back in the dating pool

Okay all you single women out there, here's your big chance. Karl Rove just divorced his wife of 24 years. Everyone else seems to be linking to this Politico piece with some sketchy details, but I'm loving this quote at The Caucus from his ex:
She called him a creative genius and a committed father to their 11-year-old son, Andrew, but also said he can be fierce and quite intimidating, even when he’s trying not to be.

“He’s learned to lay back a little bit when he and Andrew play chess,” she told me, “but even in croquet he’d be hitting my ball so far I was crying on vacation.” It isn’t only that he’s always working, she said, but that working for Republicans is the organizing principle of his life, at the center of his world, which he tends to divide into friends and foes. “I told Karl the other day,” she said, ” ‘You see things in black and white. I see lots of gray’.”
Even more interesting to me, is that Dana Perino is the official Rove family spokesperson. Whatever else her flaws, she is an attractive woman. Would it be irresponsible to speculate that perhaps Turdblossom's GOP family values may have included a little "hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail" with Dana?

Meanwhile, Karl's book is going to be released soon and you too can get a free, personally autographed bookplate by sending a SASE to to P.O. Box 40364, Washington, DC 20016. I'm guessing that also comes with inclusion on a GOP mailing list for future fundraising spam.
