"Many Republicans are waiting for a consultant or party elder to come down from the mountain and, in Moses-like fashion, deliver an agenda and talking points on stone tablets. But the burning bush, so to speak, is delivering a blindingly simple message: Behave like Republicans."
Senator Coburn takes a veiled, and well-deserved, swipe at President Bush and Carl Rove in his references to "compassionate conservatism" and the "K Street Project."
His analysis of the republican identity crisis (gender confusion?) is right on. However, I view his endorsement of Senator McCain for the presidency as dubious at best. Perhaps Coburn is trolling for the veep? Regrdless, McCain needs a solidly conservative running mate who believes in limited government and individual liberty. In other words, someone who believes the government should:
1. Tax less.
2. Spend less.
3. Regulate less.
Adopt and embrace these principles, republicans, or continue to be defeated by leftists.
