Missing the Point

"Yes, Republicans need to weed out candidates who talk like morons about rape. But this doesn't mean the country needs two pro-choice parties either. In fact, more women are pro-life than are pro-choice. The problem here for Republicans is not policy but delicacy -- speaking about culturally sensitive and philosophically complex issues with reflection and prudence."

Charles Krauthammer, Nov 8, 2012

No Charles, the Republican party doesn't need to weed out those who speak like morons, it needs to weed out candidates who THINK LIKE MORONS about rape, reproductive health, and a whole host of burning issues.  It needs to spend less time on honing its message and more on actually having ideas beyond saying F--You to those without means.
