    Don't have a clue what 'liberal' means, huh?

    Democrats are quite bad at math, they keep spending more than they should.

    Given that I actually know how a dictionary works for those rare occasions when I come across an unfamiliar word, I doubt that he does.
    And that 'classical liberal' crap is just that- crap. Conservatives are as fearfully obedient, boringly uniform and woefully clueless as they've always been.

    On fiscal issues, they are a little better.

    Republicans are quite bad at math, they seem to think revenue goes up as taxes get lower.

    Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said.
    Sounds like she said our country has lasted 400 years, not our constitution.

    But hey, flame away.

Its a cycle with no ind or change in sight.

    It seems foolish for GOP spokespersons to say that they have to attract decent numbers of minorities while at the same time having no policies which would attract minorities in any number beyond the mere token or two. It simply does not work that way.

    Republicans cannot make their party more attractive to minorities without making it less attractive to many of the people who already see it as their party of choice. Its a catch 22 for them and with demographic projections it only spells disaster for them unless they can find a way out. And of course they have found a way out...... its called voter suppression of those who will not vote for you.

    That is the solution to their problem.
    Actually I don't think it's impossible. When you think about the racist types have no where else to go. They will have to be pacified with the dismantlement of entitlements. Republicans should get off the minority, gay, and immigrant bashing, be strong on education, and stick with the true principles of conservatism as expressed by men like Walter Lippmann et al. Then there efforts will be productive.
