You only wish Canada's wingnuts had this kind of self-awareness:
In Private Memo, RNC Chief Concedes That GOP Is Bereft Of Ideas, Vows Change Of Direction
By Greg Sargent - December 19, 2008, 5:51PM
In a frank and private memo sent today to Republican National Commitee members, the RNC chairman acknowledges that the GOP has grown too addicted to ideology, places politics before policy, and is bereft of ideas -- and that it's imperative that the party shift towards a genuine effort to develop concrete policy solutions to people's problems in order to rescue itself.
The memo, which we obtained from a Republican operative. was written by RNC chief Mike Duncan to explain the RNC's decision -- first reported by Politico -- to create a new in-house think tank called the "Center for Republican Renewal," which is devoted to coming up with new policies and ideas to chart a new direction for the party after November's devastating losses.
By way of rebuttal, Canada's wingnuts promised that this would never happen to them, and that they would redouble their efforts to protect the unborn and keep those filthy gays from getting married.
