The upside

As of tonight, the Republican Party is once again opposed to the expansion of executive power, and to big government generally. :)

It’s going to be harder to make that case in light of the behavior of the dingbats who’ve been steering the ship to this point. But it still remains the correct case to make. Perhaps we will rediscover its true merits, and become recommitted to it out of principle rather than out of mere practicality.

  1. I never did get your comments on my endorsement. :)

    I wanted to hear your thoughts on this point specifically and on the bailout.

    But you’re right. The GOP has a pretty good track record of finding a voice when it’s out of power. There will be a lot of growing pains, but at least they have a chance now. Even the true believers will have to…

    Oh snap, I can’t believe I haven’t checked The Corner yet tonight. Yoink…

  3. And The Corner is no longer the spokes-organ for the Republican Party.

    Those are the people who put us here. Screw them.

  4. Oh lawd what a sweet vein of schadenfreude the corner is right now. That’s nearly pornographic.

  6. Hahaha, that’s EXACTLY the post I had in mind when I wrote that. That’s also the same post I was thinking of when I said to Rojas elsewhere that the theocons are likely to double down on their principles.
