HuffPo:

The secretary of education was ready to talk student loans and No Child Left Behind when interviewed by Washington Post editors and reporters last week. So maybe she was taken aback when asked why she turned down Karl Rove when he asked her out in the early '80s.

(Rove later joked it took his ego "decades to recover.")

Spellings paused, then said: "Have you met Karl Rove?

"He was so inept and so inartful," she added. "I mean, I couldn't even understand."

Ouch.

Since it's been a little while since I've had some Photoshop fun, this one's for you Karl. It's OK, buddy. Win some, lose some.

Can you help us out?
