There's a big brouhaha over a Karl Rove speech to New York conservatives in which he has a go at liberals:
Democrats said Thursday that White House adviser Karl Rove should either apologize or resign for accusing liberals of wanting "therapy and understanding" for the Sept. 11 attackers, escalating partisan rancor that threatens to consume Washington.

Rove, in a speech Wednesday evening to the New York state Conservative Party just a few miles north of Ground Zero, said, "Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers." Conservatives, he said, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."
Hey, if the Democrats ever win back Congress they can socialize medicine so we can all have free therapy and understanding.

Update: A partial transcript of Rove's speech is available here.
