What Does The GOP Stand For?

Last week, Colin Powell lamented the far-right positions and close-minded approach of the current GOP. Unfortunately for them, they are not listening (maybe he should've held up a vile of scary-looking white powder).

My usual journeys around conservative intelligentsia have shown that they are just digging in deeper, as usual insisting-- despite all polling data to the contrary-- that the party's woes are the fault of them not being far enough to the right. Limbaugh/Palin '12!

Here's my favorite such post of the past week, from National Review's Andy McCarthy. He writes about the Senate Armed Services report about detainee abuse (which concludes that the 'physical and mental abuse of detainees in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was the direct result of Bush administration detention policies'), and quotes Sen. McCain reacting to this by stating "These policies are wrong and must never be repeated."

McCarthy reacts angrily to this disgusting sentiment by pansy leftist John McCain by stating himself that "I haven't liked the last four weeks so I imagine I'm gonna like the next four years even less. But I must confess I don't find myself thinking, 'If only McCain had been elected ...'".

Yessir, George W. Bush may be a failed President on almost every possible front, but at least he liked torturing people. This is the kind of feel-good, populist message that will ensure that 2010 GOP comeback (maybe they can promise to waterboard greedy CEOs?). The party of ideas is back!
