A Very Small Tent

Goodbye GOP

A great article about the current crop of GOP Presidential contenders, Bush's reverse Midas Touch and the social conservatives. Bottom line the litmus tests are so many, the orthodoxy so prevalent that Ronald Reagan himself couldn't get the nomination. Ann Coulter would probably call him a "Hollywood F@g" anyway.

Money Quote: "Alan K. Simpson, a former Republican senator from Wyoming, said the party’s presidential candidates were being whipsawed as they tried to appeal to conservative voters who have a history of strong views on issues like abortion and gay rights. “These tests are destroying the Republican Party,” Mr. Simpson said.

Of course we can't underestimate the GOP's secret weapon for retaining power...Democrats inability to nominate an electable candidate.
