Funny how things have changed. Ronald Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million illegal aliens when he signed the Immigration Reform Act of 1986. Somehow 30 years later we still haven't done comprehensive immigration reform. Being intransigent in the face of the obvious will make the GOP more and more irrelevant. The GOP on racial issues! We had Republican Candidates for the state house saying that slavery was good for the African-Americans. Riots at college campuses in Mississippi and Virginia because Obama was elected. There's more wrong here than simple messaging.

Let's not sugarcoat it: we got our teeth kicked in on Tuesday. Sure, we added governorships and held our ground in the House, but we went backwards in the Senate and lost to an out-of-touch, incompetent, petty man who centered his campaign around Mitt Romney's bank account and Big Bird. We didn't get beaten by Bill Clinton in a great economy; we got beaten by another Michael Dukakis in the midst of a terrible economy. On the upside, if people have ever wondered what Jimmy Carter's second term would have looked like, then they're about to find out.
