Newsbusters.org ^ | 6-8-09 | Kyle Drennan

While discussing the future of the GOP on Sunday, CBS’s Harry Smith wondered: "Is there room for moderates in the Republican Party?...there’s a brand-new Gallup poll that mostly white, older, very religious, just almost demographically the future of the party can’t just be based in those folks."

Smith, filling in for Bob Schieffer as host of Face the Nation, spoke with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich about the state of the Republican Party and began by asking: "Who’s the most real Republican, you, Dick Cheney , Sarah Palin , Colin Powell, Rush Limbaugh?" Gingrich responded diplomatically: "Oh, all of us are. So is Mitt Romney. So is Bobby Jindal. So is Governor Lindle – Lingle of Hawaii."

Harry Smith is an old, white man. He is also a doofus.

I don’t remember hearing about any Gallop poll saying such a thing. Did he make that up?

Very simple way to beat these guys...
Have a lot of children, raise them without TV, teach them to think well, send them to be college professors, media announcers.

Add enough voters and, oila’, they vote the US right back to sanity.
