November’s election was a clear indication that the Republican Party is broken. How should it be fixed? Colin Powell examined the party’s problems and concluded that the party is too polarized, shouts at everybody and listens to Rush Limbaugh too much.
As I’ve said time and time again, if the GOP listened to Rush Limbaugh, McCain wouldn’t have been the nominee in the first place.
That aside, Powell thinks the Republicans’ tent isn’t big enough? Criminy — the Republican Party’s tent was big enough to cover a black man who endorsed and voted for a liberal Democrat, and the tent should be bigger? Sounds to me like the GOP’s tent is too big. When your tent is so big that it shelters shills for the opposition, it needs to shrink a little.
