I wonder what took Roger Ailes so long?

Karl Rove, the strategist behind President George W Bush's ascendancy to the White House, will join Rupert Murdoch's Fox News Channel as a contributor starting with Super Tuesday. Rove was chief strategist for Bush's 2000 presidential campaign and joined him in the White House in several capacities, including deputy chief of staff. He left the White House in August.

Wasn't he already on FOX's payroll? Filling that coveted role of the GOP's Chief Propagandist for Rupert.
