For Republican donors and strategists, however, the revelation sparked yet another round in a lengthy debate over whether the rambunctious GOP leader really is the right fit for the party in the minority.

Meanwhile Pastor manning plans to hold a trial against President Barack Obama, let's talk about these wackos, and otherpolial issues, tonight, on the slugfest... "If you can handle the truth."
