My Morning Wooten

Complicated. On a day where the caterwauling of inanity comes from familiar corners, Jim shows that "common sense conservatism" is not completely out the door.
Conservatives in defeat can’t stop everything they find objectionable — such is the consequence of losing elections. But they can, as House Republicans are doing on the proposed $825 billion “stimulus” proposal, begin to use alternatives to define again what conservatives stand for in government.
No assinine interpretation of Rev. Lowery's benediction. No praise for Rush Limbaugh's call for President Obama's failure.

A statement of conservatism that excludes the insanity of demonization and instead exudes the core priniciple of a desire for smaller government - Jim set a pretty good baseline for Republican recovery. Now, it is up to the individual whether that baseline will be used as a platform for higher purpose or whether it is more enjoyable to continue living beneath the floor in the wallow with the Hannitys, Limbaughs and Becks.
