The Cake is a lie!
Wow, I haven't updated my .plan in a year. Surprisingly, my update doesn't differ much from the last one... Saw 'TRON: Legacy' in 3D IMAX this weekend. F'ing Awe. Some. Oh, and also Shana and I are expecting a baby in May. Yay! :-)
Damn...I should read the plan more often! Congrats Steve and Marybeth!!! I now know 3 people who got engaged in December! Craziness! Have fun wedding planning!
Wrong, no. Crass, maybe. Worth it, yes.
This is the exact type of thinking I hoped would happen if the Republicans got trounced in the election. They need to reinvent. Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota seems to start to get it... "We cannot be a majority governing party when we essentially cannot compete in the Northeast, we are losing our ability to compete in Great Lakes states, we cannot compete on the West Coast, we are increasingly in danger of competing in the mid-Atlantic states, and the Democrats are now winning some of the western states," he said. "That is not a formula for being a majority governing party in this nation." "And similarly," he went on, "we cannot compete, and prevail, as a majority governing party if we have a significant deficit, as we do, with women, where we have a large deficit with Hispanics, where we have a large deficit with African-American voters, where we have a large deficit with people of modest incomes and modest financial circumstances. Those are not factors that make up a formula for success going forward." Mr. Pawlenty spoke of the two main lines of thought. "One perspective is, the Republicans lost their way," he said. "There will be calls, and voices across the country for Republicans to return to traditional conservative approaches in almost all respects." "A second viewpoint will be the country's changing a lot," he said. "The country is changing culturally, demographically, technologically, economically, and the like. And the Republican Party isn't changing in a way that reflects those major, or macro changes across the country." "And so there will be a call from these voices to quote unquote 'modernize' the party," he said. "The good news is both are true, and both can be harmonized in my view," he said. "We can be both conservative and we can be modern at the same time."
