"As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly." - Proverbs 26:11
It seems that the self-designated Republican party "base" (and indeed how base they are) wants to repeat the debacle of this past Tuesday by renominating an unvetted airhead, only next time at the top of the ticket. Apparently their neo-con puppetmasters are willing to lead the party over a cliff again rather than release their chokehold.
The Republican Party is moribund, but conservatism doesn't have to die with it. Those of us who truly care about the Constitution, national sovereignty, the welfare of the citizenry, and traditional American values like small government (as opposed to those who pay them mere lip service) need a new party embracing those ideals, because we'll never find any of them again in the GOP.
Very well said :) **
