Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Rumors that Karl Rove would be joining Fox News as a contributor just in time for Super Tuesday were being bandied around a bit on the Internet last week. Since the rumors looked less than official at the time, we were holding off on reporting them until we heard something definitive back, and a call to a Fox News spokeswoman went unreturned.
Over at Think Progress today, though, they’ve got the proverbial smoking gun showing that it’s now official: A Fox News advertisement proclaiming Rove “knows it all like no one else,” and announcing that he’s joining the “Fox political team.”
