Back home in Indiana
TO FOLLOW UP on my earlier post about how the Republican Party persists in backing into the future, more evidence from the Bloomberg News page: Indiana's Rep. Mike Pence, the former talk-show host and aspirant to Rush Limbaugh's "great chain of being," has been placed in the critical No. 3 position of House Conference Committee chairman. Pence, one of the most conservative Republicans in Congress, will play an influential role in shaping GOP's policy agenda in the new congress and has already indicated his desire to purify his colleagues with the ideology of Ronald Reagan. Again, may I remind Mr. Pence that McCain and Palin sang the same song with historical elegance and where are they now? Back in Plato's cave?
