Relentlessly pushing their ideological stances on abortion rights, race relations, the environment, tax policy, and go-it-alone foreign policy, (You know, all those hot-button issues that WON US THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION) the conservative extremists are not only violating traditional Republican principles, she argues, but are also holding the party back from achieving a true majority. (I guess 51 percent is a fake majority) By playing so slavishly to the far-right base, running negative campaigns and marginalizing women (Would those be the same women that Bush lost by only three percentage points? The gender gap disappeared this election, Ms. Whitman) , the party has forsaken the much broader base that propelled the "Reagan revolution" and has fueled the country's overheated polarization. (Um, no. The overheated polarization was fueled by irrational liberals who made anti-Bush movies, compared the president to Hitler and wrote anti-Bush books)Or, how about this for a more succinct editorial comment?
Bush-hatred - the gift that keeps on giving. --------
