A Marxist of the Frost Variety

In a New York Times op-ed suggesting the Democrats use "Had Enough?" as an all-purpose anti-Republican slogan in November, former congressman Tim Roemer throws in this paragraph:

In January, President Bush's adviser Karl Rove outlined the issues he believes will lead Republican candidates to victory in November: national security, the economy and taxes, and the courts. Democrats cannot allow Republicans to define the terms of the debate. Instead, they should take a page from history and from a different Karl.
He's talking about Karl Frost, a 1940s strategist who helped the Republicans win Congress in 1946. But when I first read that I assumed the "other Karl" was Karl Marx. Because way too many Democrats for my liking, alas, think relying on that Karl is the path back to power.
