Oh, and the surest way for Ann Coulter to completely lose her credibility – with me, anyway - is to ever again promote the presidential aspirations of Governor Sandy McLardass.
On a related topic, I agree with Michael Thornberry:
"Our liberals can beat their liberals" is not a battle cry Republicans can follow to victory. Even if it were, such a "victory" would be as hollow as a tennis ball.Amen. A Republican Party that would be a “full-service party of the right” might have trouble at the national level for another cycle or two, but I believe it would greatly lend itself toward the creation of a powerful grassroots movement that could begin rebuilding the party from the ground up, starting at the all-important local, county and state levels. As things inevitably get worse over the coming years as a result of the Democrats’ statist policies, there is at least a chance that, demographic changes notwithstanding, a large proportion of the electorate will eventually catch up with the novel idea that the touchstone for many good things, including economic prosperity, is individual liberty and the reduction of the scope and expense of government. If we truly believe in what we’ve been advocating, then either the majority of people ultimately come to accept our philosophy or they don’t – but they’re definitely not likely to if Republicans don’t do anything but offer a “Me too” program. For all our sakes, let us at least provide a clear and consistent alternative to the present madness: a ray of hope for the believers, and a beacon of enlightenment for the currently benighted who may well tire of their role as domesticated ruminants in the Democratic pasture once they’ve seen the dreary, soul-destroying aspects of American liberalism up close.
The Democrats are unapologetically the party of the left. If Republicans would ever stop mincing around and start being the full-service party of the right they might get somewhere. As it stands, Republicans continue to natter on about the "electability" of yet another moderate, politically correct, Marquis of Queensberrry, oh-so-polite candidate who refuses to pin the tail on the odious donkeys and as a result gets his rear handed to him by Democrats who never hesitate to throw the fastball high and tight.
