A Republican speaks truth


An absolute must-read -- a Republican Senate staffer retires after 30 years and pulls no punches. The money quote:

It should have been evident to clear-eyed observers that the Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe.

Should be required reading for all high school seniors. Of course with the constant "dumbing down" of our students it's probably to late for them so maybe college seniors instead. The Dems seem to never get their message across to average people. They dance to what ever tune the Reps put on. It's worse now than ever particularly when our president seems to have the spine of a banana. How exactly do you go out there on national T.V., wag your finger and threaten the congress not to call your bluff and then completely fold ? The only thing this president has going for him in 2012 is the Republican field. If it wasn't for that cast of clowns he'd be done.

Incredible. 20 days since this "must read" article was posted and no comments. I guess it's true that silence speaks volumes.

That was a great article Steven. Thank you for posting it. I hadn't ever been on the truthout website - it's great.

So Steven, should an obituary be written for your blog ?
