Good news: the Buggy Whip Party

US Sen. Lindsey Graham censured by SC county GOP
AP, 11 Nov 2009
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Republican leaders in a South Carolina county have censured their own U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for working with Democrats on a climate bill and other legislation.
The party resolution passed Monday says Graham has weakened the Republican brand. Bennett expects a similar resolution to be introduced at the state GOP convention next year.
We need to encourage the SC GOP: YES - please include a similar resolution in your 2010 Party Platform! - Ideological purity is paramount!!!

"And you know the surest way to go broke? Keep getting an increasing share of a shrinking market. Down the tubes. Slow but sure. You know, at one time there must've been dozens of companies making buggy whips. And I'll bet the last company around was the one that made the best goddamn buggy whip you ever saw. Now how would you have liked to have been a stockholder in that company?"
[Lawrence Garfield - the Danny DeVito character - in Other People's Money]
I'm all for turning the GOP into the buggy-whip party! (Actually, I'm all for the GOP turning the GOP into the buggy-whip party!)
