Headline of a Salon.com article I won’t link:
Mann and Ornstein: “Brighter future
for politics and policy requires
a different Republican Party”
The Republicans have become a party beholden to zealots
– with little respect for science, facts or compromise
Science! Facts! Compromise! Yes, Democrats are famously devoted to these values, and the only problem in American politics is that Republicans are not equally scientific, factual and compromising.
Yeah, I'm sure Republicans want more advice from Al Franken's buddy Norm Ornstein. F–k you, Salon-dot-com.

Last time I checked, Salon.com was losing money at the rate of $2 million a year — TWO MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR FOR A FREAKING LIBERAL BLOG — which makes their daily net loss $5,479.45.
Here’s an offer for Reince Priebus: You pay me $38,356.15 a week, and I’ll tell Republicans how to win elections. We got a deal?
UPDATE: Donald Douglas reminds me that in July, Norm Ornstein criticized Republican efforts to “sabotage Obamacare,” saying that these efforts were “sharply beneath any reasonable standards of elected officials with the fiduciary responsibility of governing.”
Ornstein is a dinosaur, a fossil who was marginally relevant 25 or 30 years ago when “Scoop Jackson Democrats” still existed, but who has become merely another obsolete pundit nostalgic for “bipartisanship.”
Wake up, Norm: The Democrat Party is now controlled by radical leftists devoted to liquidating all opposition By Any Means Necessary. Your own usefulness to the Democrats has passed its sell-by date. And if Republicans listen to your advice, they’re hopelessly doomed.
