Coming hot on the heels of Shakha’s good points about government spending– and the GOP opinion thereof- comes this report about what Republicans think went wrong over the last eight years. Hint: Probably not what you expect.
Coming off a shellacking at the polls in November, the plurality of GOP voters (43%) say their party has been too moderate over the past eight years, and 55% think it should become more like Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in the future, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 24% think failed presidential candidate John McCain is the best future model for the party, and 10% are undecided.
Only 17% of Republican voters say their party has been too conservative…
Seriously? That’s the problem? Bush wasn’t conservative enough? This just serves as more evidence that Conservapedia isn’t as far from the norm* as we might like to believe.
I would like to invite Scatterbrains and others to use the comments to this post to leave suggestions for how the Republican party could be even more conservative in the future. No suggestion is too absurd because, really, we know they’ll be taken seriously regardless.
* As a side note, yes, I know the link may be broken. It's because Conservapedia has been running about as smoothly as a cheap Yugoslavian Pinto knock-off for the past few days. So if the link is broken, it isn't because I did something wrong.
