(Newser) – Karl Rove is aghast at RNC spending at a Los Angeles bondage-themed strip club. “Somebody ought to lose their credit card,” he told Jay Leno last night on the Tonight Show. “Find that pervert, and get his card.” Elsewhere, Rove commented on health care reform—“I’m all in favor of health care reform, just not the bad kind”—and getting beaten up when he was a 9-year-old Nixon supporter by a 12-year-old girl who favored JFK. Mediaite has video of the interview.

Earlier, anti-war protesters showed up at his book signing in Beverly Hills, and one woman approached him with handcuffs to make a citizen's arrest. She accused him of "outing a CIA agent" and lying to get the US into war. Rove got into heated exchanges with other protesters before leaving the stage, reports CBS. He called the protesters an example of the "totalitarianism of the left."
