Three Types of Republicans
Jon Henke captures my thoughts nicely: “A Progressive Republican like John McCain is better than a Bush Republican, but it is not the Goldwater Republican for which I hope.”
See the link for an explication of the three types and much more discussion. Missing from the analysis, though, is a retort to the inevitable “Only Ron Paul Loves the Constitution!” commentary. Perhaps a fourth category, Nutty-as-a-Fruitcake Republicans, should have been added.
