This story is amazing. Truly. Read it.
It makes me feel so much more justified when I jokingly say “I miss normal Republicans.” The thing is, I really do. It’s just that the Republican Party of today is so much more extreme than that of what our forefathers envisioned. I think there are still some normal Republicans out there, the ones we need, the ones who balance out the Democrats, which is the point of bipartisanship in the first place, but their voices are getting smothered to make way for extremist platforms, and then adapted by a misinformed populace. I think Mitt Romney could have been a normal Republican and I think a lot of normal Republicans had hoped for that. I hope they see that he’s not, however, and I hope they remember that when they vote today.
