John Deeth Blog: How low can Republicans go?
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
... It's almost sad to watch the Republican Party's ongoing death
spiral. The moment any Republican even hints at distancing the party
from the Bush legacy or moderating their policies, they're immediately
declared persona non grata. Friday another sailor deserted the sinking
ship. Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is a pretty conservative guy (how else do
you get elected governor of freakin' Utah) but he's hinted that maybe
just maybe the GOP should rethink its homophobia. But now Huntsman is
on Team Obama as ambassador to China, a high-profile job for which
he's apparently extremely qualified. Huntsman's defection makes both
teams more conservative, in the paradox you see in the old joke: When
Ole and Lena moved from Sweden to Norway they increased the average
intelligence of both countries.
