    Michael Steele has been eating them for a while now. He said he would primary Republicans who voted for the stimulus package. There was the Rush/Cantor/Steele cluster fuck over who is the voice of the Republican party.

    Reagan had a lot of success making the GOP a big tent party. Currently the GOP has no coherent message and no relevant platform. And so the big tent is contracting. Take a look at these numbers

    It will be interesting to see what the GOP does to make themselves relevant again. Hopefully they will see that hating the gays, the blacks, the hispanics, and women is a great way to keep losing elections.

    I think the only way they can save their party is by purging their lunatic fringe. And by this I mean publicly turning against Limbaugh and Coulter and the rest of the whack jobs.

    Some would say that would alienate their base, but who the fuck would their base vote for if not them? The Republicans are still going to be the lesser of two evils to them even if they aren't sitting as far to the right as they would like. The worst case scenario in this event is they bring in more right/center membership than they lose in far right loonies.


    Now, I do have to admit to a certain amount of satisfaction in this all. In fact, there were more than a few conservative RJers that were all but peeing themselves in the gleeful assertion that the Clinton/Obama brawling in the primaries signaled the imminent implosion and subsequent annihilation of the Democrats. Am I petty for bringing this up? You bet.

    Both parties are a mess, the Republicans just fell bottom out first. The Democrats are next, because they are just as much of a mess, so now its their turn to pretty much fall apart even more so. This is part of why I'm an independent and could never vote for party, because there are so many people apart of each party, I'd want no part with. I don't know how anyone could stand with a party with people like Reid, Dodd, Pelosi, and Frank, unless they are pretty damn liberal ideologically, and as I always say anyone so hung up on one side, either side, is not only a moron, but will always be wrong with many if not all things, being that the world is so huge, complex, and ever changing.
