Bob Dole on today's GOP

You remember Dole, former Senate majority leader and Presidential candidate? He was interviewed on Fox News Sunday and said that Senate Republicans are abusing the filibuster, and that neither he nor Reagan nor Nixon could make it in today's GOP. The party no longer has any positive ideas and should "close for repairs" until it comes up with some.

Former Republican Senator Olympia Snowe agrees with Dole that the GOP should be closed for repairs. "The Republican Party is undergoing some, you know, significant and serious changes, and they are going to have to rethink their approach as a political party and how they are going to regroup and become a governing majority party that appeals to a broader group of Americans than they do today,"

Of course this comes as no surprise to anyone but regressives, who of course will now disown Dole as a turncoat. Which is of course great news, since it further hastens the demise of a party that has turned so far back in history as to be an useless anachronism.
