So you are saying repubs need to cater to a wider range of idiots. How do you do that without becoming an idiot yourself. By the way the term was, and true, quote " a neocon is a liberal who has been mugged by reality", bet you fell for the "more compassionate conservative" line also?

If you're a football fan, you've seen it happen. A coach bursts into prominence by using offensive or defensive innovations to produce victory after victory, championship after championship. For a long time, he's regarded as one of the best. And then, something happens.

First it's an upset loss here and there. Then it's a decline to mere respectability or mediocrity. The coach fires assistants, widens his search for players and tries new schemes. But nothing helps. Soon, the onetime genius is a has-been, out of ideas and out of work.

But it doesn't happen only in football. It also happens...
