Quote of the Day

Mike Hucakbee on the future of the GOP if they don’t include the Religious Right in their “rebranding”:

“Throw the social conservatives the pro-life, pro-family people overboard and the Republican party will be as irrelevant as the Whigs,” he said in reference to the American political party that largely disbanded in the mid 1800s.

“They’ll basically be a party of gray-haired old men sitting around the country club puffing cigars, sipping brandy and wondering whatever happened to the country. That will be the end of the party,” he said in the interview published Thursday.

See that smudge of smoke on the horizon out there? Yeah, that’s the ship that’s already sailed on that.

HT to Steve.
