The tea party hangover

The GOP civil war is rather interesting to view from the sidelines. Karl Rove first came out against the tea party success, being the old school Republican stalwart that he is. Then by all appearances, took an on-air drubbing by Rush Limbaugh....and conveniently softened his position.

The problem I have with O'Donnell and others of her ilk is that her platform appears short on substantive solutions for energizing the economy and long on social issues. Being anti-condom for AIDS ridden regions is nutty, but I could give her a pass in that she probably wouldn't have an effect on programs such as that. But when she states:

"it was a misconception that you, quote unquote, can't legislate morality."

The reality of that statement is that if you don't legislate one morality then you are legislating somebody else's morality," she said. "So you can't get around legislating morality."

Does she not understand the concept that legislating a moral point of view that takes away from some citizens freedom of action is not equal to legislation that doesn't?

The fact that Sarah Palin is advising her to only speak through Fox news and that she apparently won't debate Chris Coons without receiving the questions beforehand further detracts from what luster she has.

Oh crap, there I went....I used a word that had 'lust' in it.....
