Today on Fresh Air, Terry Gross interviewed Wayne Slater, who just wrote a biography of Karl Rove.

One of the most fascinating bits: he (Slater) describes how throughout 2004 Karl Rove lovingly attended to the needs of his dying stepfather--who was gay--while constructing "the most effective anti-gay political campaign ever put together...designed to re-elect President Bush"

Slater explains that Rove is simply very good at focusing at the task at hand: what does it take to crush the opposition?--regardless of his personal feelings.

Wacky.
