1. People shouldn't be killed for what their parents do. I'm sorry that idea upsets you.
2. The left DOES teach the Gaia hypothesis in science classes.
3. And social libertarians don't?

Unknown, Akin and Murdock are no more typical of the Republican Party than the Democratic Congressman who thought too many residents might cause Guam to tip over is typical of the Democratic Party.

Republicans have their problem children; we just don't elect them Vice President, Speaker and Majority Leader.

1) You might recall the comments of candidates Akin and Mourdock last year. They told the women of America that if they had their way with the abortions laws, pregnant rape and incest victims shouldn't be allowed legal abortions. Good way to attract female voters GOP.
2) Elements in the GOP that want Christian creation myths taught in science classes. Broun's comments are just one of many examples of GOP pols beclowning themselves over evolution and the big bang theory. These type of GOP pols frighten away intelligent, educated voters.
3) Social conservatives want to impose their religious value system on everyone via politics. Problematic in this day and age.

That is the brand that is out there. Perhaps rebranding is in order.

Ever since Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, there's been a lot of talk about how the Republican Party needs to "rebrand" itself.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wants, among other things, for the GOP to stop being "the stupid party." Rep. Paul Ryan has concluded that the watchword for the Republican Party needs to be "prudence." Sen. Marco Rubio is the front man for the most tangible aspect of the rebranding effort: getting on the right side of the immigration issue. In the process, he's become something of the de facto point person for the party.
