Bobo Vs. The Republicans

1 comment March 10th, 2009at 07:27am Posted by Eli

I don’t entirely agree with Bobo, but at least he has enough of a clue to recognize that Republicans need to take the economic crisis seriously and take constructive action, rather than simply saying no and waiting for Obama to fail.

It’s fascinating to watch the GOP split into the Sensible faction (comparatively speaking) and the Rush Rules Our World faction.  Amazingly, the congressional GOP is almost completely dominated by the latter, which will make the base happy… and precisely no-one else.

    As David Frum wrote in his Mar 7 2009 article for Newsweek:

    “Most of these e-mails say some version of the same thing: if you don’t agree with Rush, quit calling yourself a conservative and get out of the Republican Party. There’s the perfect culmination of the outlook Rush Limbaugh has taught his fans and followers: we want to transform the party of Lincoln, Eisenhower and Reagan into a party of unanimous dittoheads—and we don’t care how much the party has to shrink to do it. That’s not the language of politics. It’s the language of a cult.”
