Karl Rove is being inducted into the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame:

Former White House political adviser Karl Rove says he has an appreciation for all things Norse.

Except lutefisk.

Rove says any food that has lye in it “takes an acquired taste.” Rove is to be inducted into the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame in Minot on Wednesday, despite criticism from state Democrats.

Fair enough on the lutefisk but it can’t be worse than hak√°rl. The real question is what other Nordic things are we supposed to believe Rove does like. Is he a big Jens Lekman fan? He enjoys high taxes and generous social welfare provision?
