The Republicans have been trying to keep the Titanic afloat. Ceasing efforts and joining the stoners is to acceed to everyone drowning.
Given the expectations raised by the Republican punditocracy -- that Mitt was headed for a big victory -- the jolt of defeat hit especially hard.

Now, what had seemed an orderly retreat has taken on the aspect of a rout, with Beltway Republicans calling for abandonment of fixed positions all along the line.

After Senate candidates Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Todd Akin in Missouri bollixed the question of abortion in cases of rape, Republicans are being counseled to downgrade or dump the social issues. As young people seem to support same-sex marriage, why not be good libertarians and get on board?...
