    Republicans lurch ever rightwards


    The party's refusal to move to the centre threatens to undermine any hopes Republicans have of recapturing Congress in 2010

    How can they move to center without admitting they were wrong. And how can an authoritarians every admit they are wrong without ending the charade of there infallibility?

    But I do LOVE the article and the line which is bound to be a classic:

    "Republicans originally thought that Fox worked for us and now we're discovering we work for Fox."

    If you thought healthcare hysteria was big, just wait for immigration reform. And once the "illegals" who've been living and working here for years have citizenship, the GOP will never win much of anything again.

    Shooting oneself in the foot, as practiced by an entire political party.

    There is truth in that because:

    People watch Fox.

    The Repubs should be representing the people. They were out of step with Fox and lost ground because in turn this meant they were out of step with the people.

    Ergo....if it works on Fox, the Repubs should think about doing it.

    In comparison, cnn, msnbc and the networks in general are liberal run propaganda machines part and parcel to the liberal movement.
