I thought this was an amusing tidbit, if not a sort of milestone....
He was appearing on Chris Matthews and went on a tear about how he sees the tea party as destroying the GOP and pushing it close to "irrelevancy'. He doesn't like their language or "Tea Party thinking".
“It’s the Tea Party and thinking of the Tea Party and people like that that are driving the Republicans out of contention as a national party,” he said.So he's not 'voting them off the island' but he is indicating they are at least'wrong' in their thinking, if not indicating they are...... delusional.
Donaldson said that he had a particular aversion to the campaign slogan “We want to take back our country.”
“Guys, it’s not your country anymore – it’s our country and you’re part of it, but that thinking is going to defeat Republicans nationally if they don’t get rid of it,” he said.
I hope we see more rebuking of the baggers and their faulty notions.
