Right, their "message" has become so poisoned they can't risk letting it out of containment. For instance: you can't rail against deficit spending on the Democrat side 'cause they just throw it right back at you where it sticks. The only place it doesn't stick is in the alternate universe of "conservative" media.<quoted text>All Preibus is doing by threatening to pull out of debates sponsored by NBC and CNN is threatening that the GOP will finally stop being the Party of stupid. Anyone who is smart enough to be Chairman of the Republican National Committee ought to be smart enough to see that the way to defeat the Democrats is to avoid letting liberals like Anderson Cooper, James Lehrer, Martha Raddatz, Candy Crowley and Robert Schieffer set the Republican agenda for the 2016 presidential election through the questions they ask during the primary season debates. Finally the GOP is listening to the conservatives. There isn't any need to appease liberals, we have nothing in common with them. I repeat: NOTHING.
Maybe if they're so fckd up they won't participate in debates the Dems will end up debating against real ideas like those of the Libertarian Party and even the Green Party. Debates they'll lose.
