I Miss Republicans

I couldn’t agree more with this blogger’s sentiments.

I Miss Republicans.
No, seriously. Remember Republicans? Sober men in suits, pipes, who’d nod thoughtfully over their latest tract on market-driven fiscal conservatism while grinding out the numbers on rocket science. Remember those serious-looking 1950’s-1960’s science guys in the movies — Republican to a one.

They were the grown-ups. They were the realists. Sure they were a bummer, maaaaan, but on the way to La Revolution you need somebody to remember where you parked the car. I was never one (nor a Democrat, really, more an agnostic libertarian big on the social contract, but we don’t have a party …), but I genuinely liked them……

  1. Sure…I remember them too. My dad was one until he finally wised up and remembered that he was a union man. They were the neighbor guy’s dad, the guys on the black and white teevee. I suspect there are still some of them out there somewhere, and I hope they wrench thier party away from those (deleted, mouth taped shut) people who run it now.
