"The Mother of All No-Brainers"

I'm not feeling well today, so this will be a short post. Just deal with it.

My old friend Kerrie posted a link to this article on her Facebook page yesterday and asked for comments from "those of you with hands-on business experience" - The Mother of All No-Brainers, by David Brooks. I thought the article was a brilliant summary of why and how the Republican party has failed the country in general and fundamentally conservative people like me in particular, and said so in a comment (although I have no "hands-on business experience"). Other commenters dismissed him as a "one of the NY Times elitist class," probably for daring to point out that the emperor has no intellectual or economic clothes.

Read the article and let me know what you think. I'm going back to bed.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Excellent article. Especially from David Brooks.

From the article - "That’s because the Republican Party may no longer be a normal party."

The Republican party hasn't been normal beginning with Reagan.

Can you believe the Repubs are actually the "Party of Lincoln"? They've strayed pretty far afield, I'd say. Feel better, Bilbo. These idiots will still be around when you're up and around!
