The future of the GOP

Lots of people are bellyaching over who will lead the GOP in the future. Right now the important thing, though, is whether they'll ever figure out that the trick to government is not how big it is, but what you do with it. They aren't going anywhere till they've gotten over their size fetish.

By analogy, the GOP is like the driver whose four-door sedan is severely rusted with four flat tires, ripped upholstery, smoke pluming out of the exhaust, an engine literally on fire -- and the car is still parked in the world's most expensive lot...yet the driver's reaction is "you see, I knew we should have bought a two-door."

Also, check out the book "The Wrecking Crew" by Thomas Frank. Very illustrative on this point.

Also, your analogy here is close on topic with my very first post on this blog. Though yours is more succinct :)
