(Newser) – When Karl Rove drives off into the sunset tonight, his ride will boast a new take on “Just Married” decorations. While the just-resigned strategist was visiting Texas, his Jaguar was pranked at the White House, the AP reports. The jokesters wrapped the vehicle in plastic wrap before slapping on an “I Love Barack Obama” bumper sticker.

Whether or not the master political architect has to unencumber the car himself, it will have to be stripped of the eagle stuffed animals on the trunk and the toy elephant on the hood. The Secret Service has a heavy presence in the lot where Rove parks, CBS News reports, suggesting that the detailing was an inside job.
