It looks like I’m not the only person who wonders where the true Republicans have gone. The Republican party today is nothing like the Republicans I remember from my childhood. I thought I was just imagining things, but this great blog entry by Kung Fu Monkey shows I’m not the only one missing the real Republicans.
The Monkey writes: “They were the grown-ups. They were the realists. Sure they were a bummer, maaaaan, but on the way to La Revolution you need somebody to remember where you parked the car. I was never one (nor a Democrat, really, more an agnostic libertarian big on the social contract, but we don’t have a party …), but I genuinely liked them.
“How did they become the party of fairy dust and make believe? How did they become the anti-science guys? The anti-fact guys? The anti-logic guys?”
