Please respect Karl Rove’s right to publicly rant about family values while privately destroying it. Twice.

Famed Republican strategist Karl Rove got divorced last week, Politico reports.

Spokeswoman Dana Perino said, “Karl Rove and his wife, Darby, were granted a divorce last week. The couple came to the decision mutually and amicably, and they maintain a close relationship and a strong friendship. There will be no further comment and the family requests that its privacy be respected.”

Karl married Darby Hickson in 1986. They have one son, Andrew. Rove’s previous marriage to a Houston socialite ended after a […]

I guess I owe the married people an apology – I’m sorry for calling the entire institution of marriage “idiotic”. ?Really, I am. ?What I meant to say is that in most cases like Tiger Woods’, marriage is idiotic.

Even if you think watching golf on TV is idiotic, just watch […]

These men constantly have women “making themselves sexually available” to them. (If taken […]

This story of Bristol Palin being pregnant and the Palin camp trying to cover it up was the first thing I heard in relation to Palin and her daughter. Then the rumors that Sarah lied about giving birth to her son, and was instead covering for Bristol having done so.

Who knows what will come of the Trig Palin story. It certainly is more plausible that Sarah gave birth to him – as Downs Syndrome is more likely in older mothers giving birth. What still does not make sense is the lack of real evidence that Sarah was […]
