Republicans in a Changing Country

Ross Douthat

.... voters simply aren’t as ideological consistent as pundits, and so it’s a grave mistake to think that political parties thrive by evolving toward a more perfect ideological consistency. For a party facing problems like the ones the G.O.P. faces now, it’s not enough to just get “more libertarian” or “more populist” or “more socially conservative,” without recognizing how public opinion differs from issue to issue and policy to policy. Instead, the most successful politicians go where the votes are, and let the ideological chips fall where they may.

You really know nothing about hunting, do you?

Used to be against hunting myself because we have grocery stores now. But hunting has a lot to do with controlling the population of animals - deer, for example.

Trophy hunting, however, is still wrong.
Most deer meat is infested with E-coli and parasites.

Well then, that explains why you're repeating propaganda and not the facts.

And again, we find common ground. Hunting for food and population control is often necessary - hunting for sport is sick.

Good morning, Carol.

In their infinite wisdom, N.Y. City officials are issuing summonses to people on Staten Island for making their damaged homes somewhat livable without the proper permits. That includes repairing doors, windows and roofs or doing minor demolition work.(Something tells me the Unions are behind this.) Government bureaucracy at it's finest!

The sad state of zealots with microphones

....Sometimes, they act -- the Hannitys, the O'Reillys, the Trumps, the Limbaughs, the whole conservative political infotainment complex -- as if this were all a game, as if their nonstop litany of half truths, untruths and fear mongering, their echo chamber of studied outrage, practiced panic and intellectual incoherence had no human consequences. Sometimes, they behave as if it were morally permissible -- indeed, morally required -- to say whatever asinine, indefensible, coarse or outrageous thing comes to mind in the name of defeating or diminishing the dreaded left. And never mind that vulnerable people might hear this and shape their beliefs accordingly.

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/bal-...

But these, I have come to believe, are not showmen. They are zealots. They do believe half the garbage they say, and they have microphones to say it with. That is infinitely more frightening.

So one can only hope, with slightly more expectation, that the GOP will finally disenthrall itself from this ongoing affront to decency and intelligence and thereby render it moot.

That's if you judge success by getting elected. most people would judge success by effective public policy.

I know enough to know that most hunters who "hunt for their food" couldn't survive without a local grocery store.

Republican Underground Emerges From The Shadows

They are few, but they are vocal: the pro-same-sex marriage, pro-choice, pro-tax Republican activists. For years, these groups have labored off the radar, trying to convince a party unwilling to listen that it needs to moderate on issues from social to fiscal. But after the Democrats’ decisive victories on Nov. 6, the Republican Underground says its finally time to go mainstream.

The Motor City Madman has about 11 months to keep his promise:

”If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Something tells me he'll renege; although he might enjoy jail...lotsa 'fresh meat' in there.

Last week group of a dozen hunters in Colorado suddenly became violently ill after having a deer feast. After inducing vomiting, the ER doctors discovered their stomachs were full of hookworms.
