Gut-Check Time For The GOP

OK, let’s talk about the 2012 presidential race here for just a second.

The GOP — and that includes Tea Partiers, old-line fiscal conservatives, Religious Right social conservatives, and those who are convenient Libertarians — has, without a trace of shame, allowed Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, Alan Keyes, and even Donald Trump to be mentioned as candidates for the most powerful position on earth and the face of the United States before a hostile, turbulent world.

And now Newt Gingrich?

Really?

How stupid — by which I mean grasping, undiscerning, irresponsible, and desperate — can that be for the political party that has claimed not only Christ’s platform but his voice as well?
