Wait a minute. Perhaps Obama’s right. Perhaps I’ve been wrong to blindly follow the neanderthal, know-nothing ideology and policies of the modern GOP. Maybe we Republicans should embrace the progressive tradition and put the welfare of the average person and the survival of the planet above sheer corporate greed and profit. Maybe the lessons of science and the enlightenment could be extended to our party platform on issues of health care, the environment, and improving the lives of the poor and middle class. Perhaps I could lead the way to a new age, an age of rebirth, a Renaissance! …. Naaaaaahhh!
