For the first time since he refused to accept the Election Night returns from Ohio, Karl Rove made an appearance on Fox News.
Politico counts 27 days since Rove's last appearance on Fox, a brief hiatus that ended with last night's appearance on "Special Report" with Bret Baier.
Gabe Sherman of New York Magazine reported last week that Fox News chief Roger Ailes instructed staffers to keep Rove and Dick Morris off the air, as "a pair of pundits perhaps most closely aligned with Fox’s anti-Obama campaign," as Sherman put it.
