  •  Rove is married (none)
    This is an excellent profile of Rove from the Guardian.

    At this time, he married Valerie Wainright, a wealthy Houston woman from the Bush social circle, but the marriage could not withstand his consuming preoccupation with politics.(He married his second wife, Darby, in 1986.)

    Strangely his marital status is not mentioned on the WhiteHouse.gov website and yet they give Mrs. Cheney her own page.

    Also, I read somewhere that he has a son.

    •  This may just be a rumor... (none)
      But I heard that Karl Rove is adopted; that he was actually born in Brazil as a result of an nefarious genetic experiment conducted in the late 1940's by persons of aryan pursuasion.

      Steve Gutenberg was on the case for awhile.

      •  Speculation, my dear Watson (4.00)
        The truth of Rove's past is very sad.

        Born on Christmas Day 1950 in Denver, Colorado, he grew up in or near the Rockies, where his father worked as a geologist. On his 19th birthday, his father walked out on him. Soon afterwards, he found out that he was not his father after all, the news dropped into a dinner-table conversation by his aunt and uncle. Twelve years later, alone in Reno, his mother committed suicide.
        from the Guardian link above.

    •  More on Rove, his diet (none)
      from Vanity Fair letters:

      I WAS SO THRILLED to see Karl Rove included in your "Best of the Best" issue. [Karl won the Best Brain of 2004 in Vanity Fair] Why? Within your profile I learned

       that there actually is a force that will finally stop this man: his diet. Eat up those eggies, Karl, with an extra dose of butter, heavy cream, an dbacon grease.

      You make our vice president look like Lance Armstrong. [B.B. Minn, MN]

      bon appetit, Karl.

    •  I'm so glad to hear that (none)
      because this morning some guy tried to tell me he was dating Maureen Dowd...or that he'd sent her huge numbers of roses for Valentine's Day...and he'd seen it on the news.  I tried to tell him that for all of Maureen's faults, she wouldn't date Satan, but it didn't work. Alas.

      Well, I'm glad to hear that gruesome possibility is ruled out.
