DEBATE OF THE WEEK:
   Can the GOP Find Another Karl Rove?
 
YES:
House Minority Leader John Boehner
It won’t be easy of course to find anybody as skilled as Karl Rove in fraud, deceit, trickery, manipulation, fear-mongering, voter disenfranchisement, intimidation, law-breaking, influence-peddling, cover-ups and hypocrisy, but we can and will do it.
NO:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell
We will never find anyone again as adept as Karl Rove at slander, election theft, stonewalling, evasion, polarization, whisper campaigns, deniability, secrecy, cronyism, purges, skullduggery and exploitation. We must simply accept that.
