The 10 year-old Karl Rove

Now that Roger Ailes is busy running Fox News and Karl Rove has retired to the life of columnist and pundit, Republicans across the country are surely asking: Where's our next slimeball political operator who can drive our candidates to victory through blatant appeals to racism and fear? The Los Angeles Times appears to have found him -- a 10 year-old in Iowa:

It was an unusual question at the end of a long day: What, the fifth-grader asked Barack Obama, would you do as president if illegal immigrants staged a terrorist attack on the United States while you were pulling troops out of Iraq?

Quick, someone get this kid early admission to Patrick Henry University! I hope nobody else was planning to run for president of the national College Republicans between 2015 and 2019.

If he's smart, Tagg Romney is already signing this kid to an exclusive consulting contract for the 2020 election.
