I'm an aspiring political commentator. Enjoy the commentary.
"This election is about the future of the Republican Party and whether we are going to be a governing majority or whether we are going to be an ideologically pure minority."
Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) states the case for working towards compromise in Congress. We have more from Simpson — and hear what his opponent says about compromise — on Morning Edition. (via nprontheroad)
I vote ideologically pure minority.
"I’m a black, gay woman. I think the only way for the GOP to hate me more is if I sent them a video of me rolling around on a pile of welfare checks."
"I like that about the Republicans; the evidence does not faze them, they are not bothered at all by the facts."
