We are still blogging lite due to having yet to completely consume all the cookies and other goodies we baked. Here is a quote from former Bush aide, Mark McKinnon:
Bush aide Mark McKinnon on the incredible shrinking Republican Party:
"Increasingly, it is becoming clear that the party is against everything
and for nothing.
"Nothing on taxes. Nothing on gun control.
Nothing on climate change. Nothing on gay marriage. Nothing on
immigration reform (or an incremental, piece-by-piece approach, which
will result in nothing). It's a very odd situation when the losing party
is the party refusing to negotiate. It may be how you disrupt, but it
is not how you govern, or how you ever hope to regain a majority.
"And so, we have a Republican Party today willing to eliminate any
prospect for a decent future for anyone, including itself, if it cannot
be a future that is 100 percent in accordance with its core beliefs and
principles. That's not governing. That's just lobbing hand grenades. If
you're only standing on principle to appear taller, then you appear
smaller. And the GOP is shrinking daily before our eyes."
This is an open thread.
