    I’ve long suggested that the GOP recast itself with much less so-con emphasis, but here’s a different take from WaPo columnist Mike Gerson:

    “But parties generally don’t get to reformulate their appeal from scratch. While Republicans can’t win with their base alone, they also can’t win without it. Religious conservatives, for example, are the single largest constituency within the GOP, and compose about a quarter of the entire electorate. Such voters are not baggage thrown overboard to lighten the ship; they are planks in the hull.”

    Political thriller writer Vince Flynn dies a couple of days ago. A real shame. His books were great and I recommend you all pick them up if you enjoy and good thrill ride! RIP Vince/Mitch Rapp.

    The Zone radio embarrassment happened last Monday. Why is it being posted here four days later?

    I’ll look forward to moon-landing coverage next week.
