Ramesh Ponnuru speaks truth to power

Or really powerlessness and fading. The GOP brand is critically injured right now. At least some recognize the failure. The Fox News bots think everything is solved by bluster and bullshit.

From the NRO link:

Speaking only for myself, the point of it is to say what I think is true, whether or not it helps the candidates I hope win. Whatever value there may be to reading me would disappear if I wrote only comments that help Republicans.

The disconnect from GOP reality can be directly chalked up to around two decades of right wing talk radio and the idiotic line of argument the media has a leftish slant. Rush and his copycats got rich on the backs of intellectual weakness on the right. Ponnuru should be applauded for trying to fix this problem.
