So once again, I'll leap in and enjoy Jennifer Rubin's angst. Today she wrote a plea to the Republican leaders who are either sitting this one out or haven't had the nerve to endorse anyone.
It seems, gentlemen, it’s time to get off your . . . er . . . time to get off the bench and into the game. It is time to make the case for winning conservatism — a conservatism attractive to centrist voters that can be translated into a reform agenda. If conservatism becomes a movement of anti-media bashing and hyperbolic rhetoric, it will cease to be a force in American politics. And if it is led by an egomaniac whose personal advancement takes precedence over any principle, the GOP will be (correctly) mocked.
So how about it? One of you can run yourself. Or you can instead collectively get behind a not-Gingrich candidate. But really, if you are to have a Republican Party to lead one day in the future, you can’t very well do nothing.
Too late Jennifer. You shoulda thought of that when your party started stoking the fires of "anti-media bashing and hyperbolic rhetoric" 3-4 years ago. In the meantime, you forgot about actually developing a "reform agenda" and this is all you've got now...hyperbolic Obama hatred. You all made this bed and its a little late to be crying because you have to sleep in it.
So pardon me while I enjoy the fact that you're all getting your just deserts.
