Ex-Rove Aide Booted From 'The Bachelor'

Apparently, viewers of ABC's romantic comedy fiasco The Bachelor have been saddled with the sort of contestant that fills every single bad Washington, DC bar every single weekend, namely, Denise - who pitches woo by playing up how she used to be an aide to Karl Rove. "Bush's brain!" she enthuses. Carri, a "church marketer" from Oklahoma, responds by doing exactly the same thing I do when I'm cornered by one of these careerist bores: bite down hard on something painful. Carri gets our rose! She got the Bachelor's too, as did a "Venice Beach hotdog vendor." No such luck for Denise, I'm afraid.
