This is bad news for John McCain
Bill Kristol who has never been wrong about ANYTHING:
Even if Republicans pick up the House in 2010, the party’s big ideas and themes for the 2012 presidential race will probably not emanate from Capitol Hill.
The center of gravity, I suspect, will instead lie with individuals such as Palin and Huckabee and Gingrich, media personalities like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, and activists at town halls and tea parties. Some will lament this — but over the past year, as those voices have dominated, conservatism has done pretty well in the body politic, and Republicans have narrowed the gap with Democrats in test ballots.
With regard to Palin, Huckabee, Gingrich, Beck, and Limbaugh and the shouty teabaggers becoming the voice of the party…. please. Oh please. Let Bill be right for once.
