End it, don't mend it

The current Republican Party has no place in the political dialog of a modern nation. It is mastered by destructive and incorrigible extremists.

Of course America needs representation for the center right. At present, that burden is carried by DINOs like Joe Lieberman and Blanche Lincoln, both of whom would be perfectly tolerable as the opposition.

Still, to misconstrue Rummy, you go to war with the conservatives you have, not the conservatives you want. (If you had the conservatives you want, you would be able to talk constructively with them and wouldn't have to go to war at all.)
