Karl Rove and his wife of 24 years were quietly granted a divorce last week, and their spokeswoman, Dana Perino, waited until the perfect slow regular-news and obsessive terror-news day to announce it this afternoon:
"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.”
Lest the beauty of the Rove friend-ivorce not be expressed enough by that announcement, a family friend told Politico:
"They maintain a strong friendship, and they both feel that that friendship is a source of comfort and inspiration for their friends and family.”
