“I’m The Proud Owner Of Karl Rove’s Father’s Solid Gold Cock Ring.”

Gavin M: Karl Rove's father was not only gay, but a part of the early body piercing scene and a regular at 70s piercing parties

Well this is certainly interesting:

The "Jim" in this story is the Jim Ward who started the piercing industry. Louie is Louis Claude Rove whose adopted son's first name is Karl. Louie died quietly in Palm Springs as his very secular, not-believing son ran President Bush's campaign for President of the United States that energized the Christian evangelical base around the wedge issue of gay marriage...

As I watched the news this week, I saw a Karl Rove standing beside the President, his voice crocking, talking about his love for Bush and his country but over that "noise," I heard the memory of Joe Koons whispering in my ear.

"You do know who his son is?"

...Oh My God!

And now I wondered if that son ever cried for the man who raised him and watched him grow up? I'd be curious as to how Karl Rove would ever explain his pierced, gay father?
