Conservatism Isn't Finished - WSJ.com:
The reason those [red state/blue state] wars have raged ever since 1968 was because they help Republicans win elections. For Democrats to wish that they would please stop was about as useful as asking Genghis Khan to a tea party.It's difficult for me to conceive how we can unify the country when one side is doing things like labeling Obama a Muslim (oh the horror), calling it's base "real America", refusing communion to Obama supporters, doubting the patriotism of those who think different.
Seriously, how does one bridge the divide when one side is so hateful?
It is like inviting Genghis Khan to a tea party.
And, to top things off. The Republican party has declared war on science. Rational thinking is no longer allowed.
