This is a fabulous article from politico about Congressman Wilson’s remark and the larger problem it presents for the GOP. The Republican party really is facing a bit of an identity crisis and, so far, the “wrong” people are the face of the party. This was so clear during the President’s address, but it is something that we have been seeing since the election. The sad fact is that the reasonable conservative voices are being overwhelmed by the antics of Rush, the lies of Palin, the scandals of Sanford, the disrespect of some in house (not just Wilson, but the congressman who was wearing the ‘what bill’ sign and the many who were too busy texting to listen to the President) and the Nazi comparisons of a few on the far right. This is not good for the GOP and it is not good for the country. It remains to be seen who the future GOP leaders will be but, for the sake of the party, they better figure it out soon.
