It's (almost) official: Karl Rove is gay. If you believe Jeff Gannon's former employer, Talon News, that is.
DC gossip Wonkette is reporting (and Talon is sort of confirming) that Gannon is planning a 'tell-all' book about Rove which will say that Bush's brain - who orchestrated some of the most anti-gay political strategies in history - liked White House sleepovers . . . with Gannon. Karl, it seems, was a customer of Gannon's, and enjoyed the occassional rendez-vous with the former hooker, "including several overnight stays in the White House Buchanan bedroom."
There's no word on the particulars of Rove's 'purchases,' but details, apparently, are due in September.
Gannon's book, tentatively titled Behind Enemy Lines, will be published soon. And, according to Talon News, "Karl Rove apparently fears being exposed as a former customer of Gannon's or his military pron websites like www.hotmilitarystud.com."
And, (pay attention Bill Richardson!) there's new evidence that being gay is genetic.
We all knew that Karl's adoptive father was gay . . . and passed away just as the White House adviser was implementing his anti-marriage amendment campaign in 2004. And if we believe the old moniker of 'like father, like son,' the lurid details of Karl's trips to the Buchanan bedroom (which, one imagines, he thought may have been named after Pat or Bay) should be scandalous, indeed.
"Karl's dad once appeared on the cover of 'Piercing Fans International Quarterly,'" Wonkette reports, " . . . He had 37 piercings and they were all made of solid gold."
Now, I have to imagine that Karl's dad was probably a good guy (or at least a lot better than his son), but 37 PIERCINGS?! IN SOLID GOLD? Damn . . .
I like the occassional piercing (as both my ears evidence), but where do you put 37 of them?!
The possibilities boggle 'the brain.'
But regardless, Behind Enemy Lines should be all the fodder we need for a fall to rival only that of Mark Foley's autumnal IMs. So stay tuned as we learn more about what Karl meant by spending more time with his 'family.'
