Longtime Republican religious nutcase Cal Thomas, today at Town Hall:
"Republicans...will continue losing elections if they stress only ideological purity instead of demonstrating that their principles are superior to those of welfare state Democrats."
Great idea, Cal. Here's a helpful suggestion along those lines: as soon as you figure out a way to convince people that torture is superior to health care for children, you are on your way.
I'd work on that if I were you. It may be your best shot.
