    I have no doubt that Republicans are not smart enough to actually move to the left. But they will want to cultivate the optics of moving to the left, or at least of wanting to go after some of the left's traditional constituencies. So look to them making noises about immigration reform, and about how the free market is the true friend of immigrants, women, and people of color -- showering jobby goodness down on us all.

    One thing we should never do is to underestimate the capacity of the Republicans for rebranding. At the start of 2009, we thought there was no way that they could overcome the albatross of the Bush legacy. But there they were in 2010, sweeping the midterms, because they managed to repackage chicken shit as chicken salad.

    Nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of non-thought. -- Milan Kundera
