The problem with hard core Republican conservative is the media will focus on their RELIGIOUS issues and the Repubs conveniently provide fodder and make themselves sound like bible thumping idiots. Leave your religion for Sunday school, WIN THE FRIGGIN ELECTIONS.

wrong we need to bring our religious convictions and our conservative values to the fore. We need to stop runnong and hiding , we need to tack back the party and stand our ground, this is what Dr. Sowell is stating oh so eloquently and you need to go be a socialist if you can't see that. there are really only two groups of people , SOCIALISTS and everyone else decide on which group you want belong

The media works hard to get Republicans to say things that make them sound like Bible-thumping idiots. It would be nice if our candidates would learn to decline to answer questions that have absolutely NO relevance to anything they'll do when they're elected.

I mean, really, could Mourdock have gotten legislation passed that would force a woman impregnated during a rape to carry that baby to term? Sheesh!! "Completely irrelevant question. Next question, please." How hard was that?
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
