Arianna Huffington:
Yesterday, Rahm Emanuel declared that Rush Limbaugh is "the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican Party." In truth, Rush is just a massive shiny object that distracts our attention from the real intellectual force behind the Republican Party, Karl Rove. He demonstrated on This Week why he is the real danger in the wounded-but-still-destructive GOP.
