With the exception of elements of the stimulus package, it seems to be the Republicans' turn to be out of touch in the new millennium. I tuned in not that long ago, one of their mental midgets had the audacity to suggest that President Obama quiet the leftist extremists taking cheap shots at Sarah Palin (another mental midget). Was that same person suggesting W should quiet Rush Limbaugh say 6 years ago? I think not. How absurd, and everyone there nodded as if it was a point worth considering.
