The liberals’ favorite “Republican,” Kathleen Parker:
In trying to understand the Republican Party’s internal battles, it helps to think of Michael and Sonny. Corleone, that is. …
That would be Ted Cruz, the Texas senator who grabbed headlines by speaking for 21 hours against Obamacare. Cruz is neither Michael nor Sonny but the star of his own movie. He’s Ted bin Laden — the guy who hands out suicide vests and then goes to lunch.
The family clash between the Corleone brothers is about to become bloodier, though it doesn’t have to. What needs to happen is for certain parties to become wiser and to absorb this simple truth: You cannot govern if you cannot win.
What a tool. Somebody tell her the world doesn’t need another Maureen Dowd.
Parker later writes that maybe it’s time for “Sonny” to take a ride through a toll plaza. If you’ve seen The Godfather you know what that means. Had Parker written that about a Dem the libs would be calling for her to be fired, but in this case it allows her to remain one of their favorite “Republicans,” just after John McCain.
