Please Sarah, Can I Have Some More?

Well, it’s official: Republicans have a political death wish:

While the media and political elites debate the future of the GOP, rank and file Republicans see see no need to deviate from the party’s current path. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a plurality of Republican voters think the party has grown too moderate over the past eight years, and a majority think the party should become more like controversial Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

These sentiments echo the view of new RNC chairman Michael Steele, who in an interview on Fox News yesterday strongly iterated that the GOP’s troubles stemmed not from their governing policies but their failure to successfully sell those policies to the American people:

We failed to lead,” said the former Lt. Maryland Governor. “The principles we espoused [in 1994] are still true and good today and that’s not what people moved away from us for. They moved away from us because we behaved badly. We came to Washington and we became like the people we were sent here to replace. And they replaced us.”

Yes, that’s right – the Republicans lost all those elections because American voters were turned off by their meanspirited, amoral behavior.  All they need to do to reclaim their power is to clean up their act so that nothing distracts the voters from their meanspirited, amoral policies.

Good luck with that.

    I think Newt and Joe The Plumber will battle it out for that honor.
