Here's Your Republican Rehab Kit

The continuing power struggle between the liberal and conservative wings of the Republican party continue to cost elections.What struggle? Ron Paul Delegates being shut out of voting for their candidate at the Convention turned off several million potential voters: instead of a big tent, they got a slap in the face. The Virginia Delegates, instead of being able to start a floor fight over conservative platform planks were kept locked up in their buses (unable to disembark) during the vote. Then the vote to allow substitution of duly elected candidates with candidates more favorable to the leading candidate all speak of less liberty and more of control. While these are not the only reasons for loosing, they certainly are not good signs.

I don't know if these things actually happened at the National convention. I do know that my local Republican party tends to function as a somewhat closed old-boys' network; new blood need not apply. Very frustrating if you wanted to see Republicans do better, but the 9local) party doesn't want new people who would actually work for that.

The GOP rails against the Democrat's "Chicago politics" but has shown the same thuggish behavior during this campaign.

Really? Please elaborate and use verifiable facts, not hyperbole and idiotic assertions such as requiring ID to vote, or paying for billboard advertising informing people that voter fraud is a felony somehow disenfranchises minorities.

I'm not holding my breath.

Show me a sore loser, and I’ll show you a loser. This has rung in my ears since the election, as I listened to some fellow Republicans and conservatives weeping, whining, and caterwauling. Not to mention griping, blaming, and sulking. Enough already.

Good losers being similarly scorned, who does that leave? Political party animals who rebound from a loss with humility, humor, and honesty. Happy warriors who take a setback in stride, undaunted yet undefensive. Those are the comrades I’ll share a shell-shocked foxhole with. The authors of anguished obituaries for America and the GOP need not apply.

For a couple...
