> It's unfortunate, and I'm having a hard time finding a way to put it nicely, but other issues seem to take up most of that party's time.
Agreed. This article was the second suggestion I read recently on how the Republican party could improve its brand. The other piece, courtesy the Atlantic, seemed more pressing, and might be one of those things that's hard to put nicely:
Ah, yes. The Republicans are getting no end of advice from people on the left as to what they should do to start winning elections after a relatively narrow loss. It seems 2010 has been completely erased from the collective Democratic memory, as is the fact that the Republicans were returned control of the House of Representatives. Somehow all the advice we're getting is "move left" and "be more like us".
