You know things are crazy when Mike Huckabee is seeming like the most reasonable of your bunch.

I suppose there is solace to be taken in the fact that this sort of thinking seems to be less popular than ever (if polling numbers are to be believed, anyway).
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

I feel sorry for decent Republicans the way I feel sorry for decent Israelis.  Or decent South Africans during apartheid.  Or, for that matter, decent Americans during much of this benighted nation's history.

Or, come to think of it, decent men.

I think I just hate anyone who's really passionate about any cause. Peta, free market guys, you name it.

Yes, yes, come over to the Dark Side.

I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

If we really were representative of the Dark Side, Mr. Coat, the world would be a much better place.

TE, I take Republicans very, very seriously. They may be laughable right now, but we won't be laughing the minute they find the right candidate to give them a voice.  Mort Rimbley didn't fit the bill. Nor did McCain. Nor did Palin. But some ghoul is waiting in the wings to become the next Reagan circa 1980 or Gingrich circa 1994.

100% OTM. The GOP is in dire straits right now. However, I don't have any doubt that they will get their act together. With that being said, I don't think that purging your party of moderates is necessarily the best way to begin their reclamation project.
