Quote of the Day

“The [Republican] party has let itself become the captive of conflicting ideological bases:  anti-abortion advocates, anti-immigration activists, social conservatives worried about the sanctity of marriage, libertarians who want to shrink government, and anti-tax advocates who want to drown government in a bathtub.

“Sorry, but you can’t address the great challenges America faces today with that incoherent mix of hardened positions.”

Thomas Friedman, “We Need a Second Party,” NYT
