→ Drawing the Battle Lines in the Republican Party

Erick Erickson explains the current state of the Republican Party:

The Republican Party is not fighting for the heart and soul of the nation because the Republican Party is fighting for its own heart and soul. Made worse, many in the Republican base continue to idolize some of the men and women in the Republican Party who have caused the very problems the party now faces. It is adrift morally, intellectually, and physically with a depressed base of activists, an out of touch base of rich donors, and a leadership that has spent more time in the Virginia and DC area than the Army of the Potomac under George B. McClellan.

It is because of articles like this that I am very glad we have people like Mr. Erickson fighting the good fight.
