Maybe Republicans Should Try Being Popular

And then there is the Karl Rove/Ann Coulter wing of the GOP that want to keep nominating and supporting the same tired, spineless establishment candidates. I know numerous conservatives that stayed home from the polls because they could not stomach any more of the same ole', same ole'. Just keep telling yourself the things that matter to conservatives are not important and we will keep losing and losing and losing--much to the delight of progressives.

Republicans don't control the U.S. Senate and they don't have the presidency. Instead of wasting time and energy in doomed efforts to defeat President Obama's Cabinet nominees or sucking up to illegal aliens, why not focus on issues where Republicans can be off-the-charts popular while forcing Democrats into taking stupid positions?

After the slaughters at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo., Tucson, Ariz., and Newtown, Conn., every sentient person knows we need to do something about institutionalizing the mentally ill and -- at the very least -- keeping guns out of their hands.

That happens to be impossible right now....
