That Giant Flushing Sound

Naturally one of the things that an opposition party does above all others is oppose. But the Republicans are fast becoming the party of Rush Limbaugh and Joe the Plumber. I'm going to bet that on balance that is not good for either the GOP or American conservatism. For a party that only serves to oppose loses its relevance rather quickly. And while I am enjoying the short-term spectacle of the right shrilly imploding it is not good for American politics for the right to become little more than a cartoon of obstructionism in action.

Amen to all of that! With the spectacularly bad showing by Governor Jindal last week (who many of the GOP are considering as a leading candidate for 2012), Rush continuing to get more coverage than just about any other Republican, and the new head of the party, Michael Steele, essentially calling Rush a "big, fat, idiot", its no wonder that the President's ratings bounced this past week.
