Quote of the Day

Jonathan Bernstein is right:

The other thing Id say to Republicans disappointed in the current choices (as Ross Douthat says he is today) is this: What youre upset with isnt the candidate its the party. Its inconceivable that anyone could get the Republican nomination while using anything but solid Tea Party rhetoric on pretty much every issue. Theyre all going to claim that taxes should never, ever, ever be raised no matter what, that half of what the government does is evil or unconstitutional or whatever, that the scientific consensus on climate is some sort of crazed conspiracy, and so on down the line. Ive been saying for some time now that the odds are against Republicans actually nominating a candidate who believes crazy things but the odds of them nominating someone who says crazy things has gone up…. Thats what the Republican Party is right now, and thats what their nominee is going to say.
