Where have all the Republicans gone…
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?”
