Mike Murphy on the GOP's troubles
Murphy ranks high on my list of the smartest political consultants in either party.Full Story

If only Republicans would listen to the smartest people in the party, instead of to the uninformed rednecks who yell the loudest.
"We Republicans cherish the free market. So now might be the right time to start listening to it.
Our party has lost the popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections. That is 20 years of “no, thanks” from the American people. Only basketball’s Washington Generals, who are paid to lose to the Harlem Globetrotters, can exceed that losing record, and by only four years (1971–95).
The worst error politicians can make is to spin themselves. It’s time for the GOP to face the hard truth, no matter how painful.
The Republican brand is dying, many of our strategists are incompetent, and we still design campaigns to prevail in the America of 25 years ago."

God forbid intelligent people should just tell the truth, as the writer did in post 1 above.
As Al Capp said, "I've learned one thing--people who know the least anyways always seem to know it the loudest!"
I've noticed the same thing.
