Huff and Puff and Blow the Big Tent Down

By David Bhansen

If you have not heard the new gospel of political wisdom -that for Republicans to ever win elections again, they need to think and vote like Democrats – then you are living under a rock. If you have not heard the expression, “big tent Republicanism” (a reference to a very inclusive kind of Republicanism that defines “Republicans” as – “all sorts of non-Republicans”), you have been asleep. If you have not at least heard the thesis articulated that Republicans will become relevant again once they learn to “stretch the boundaries” of their ideology, then I envy you. For this latest fad has been repeated ad nauseam for some time now, and has been used to justify all sorts of political idiocy. Well, I am happy to report that the big bad wolf has come through town, and the alleged big tent of Republicanism has been blown down to the ground where it belongs.

You are going to see more of these articles as Tuesday ends favorably for conservatives.
