Is it time for the mobs to storm the GOP Bastille?

Increasingly these days, it seems that the new motto of the Republican Party is becoming not "no," but "no, I don't want to hear it."

Those of you who have tried to contact a Congressman or Senator not your own may have noticed that e-mails at .gov are being set to filter out communications not from Congressmen's home districts or Senator's home states. They're voting on national issues but feel less inclined to hear from the national electorate.

The same thing is happening with their staffers when you try to reach them by phone.

I'm used to that sort of thing from Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank's crowd. This is new from the GOP and getting worse.

This is something I intend to keep in mind the next time I receive a solicitation e-mail from the RNCC.

Now we have Michael Steele taking a dump on Rush Limbaugh, even while admitting he has never listened to the show. Unelectable and stupid is no way to go through life, son. You would think his treatment during his senatorial run would have shown him the futility of reaching out to the opposition --

-- but it seems an inability to learn from experience is the hallmark of a Good Washington Republican.

Perhaps it is time to demand that the leadership of the RNC be selected by a radical new source. Voting Republicans. It could well be time to demand a national referendum on the GOP leadership. Such an election could be handled by mail-in ballots, and candidates for RNC leadership could state their case in venues made available by the likes of Fox News Sunday and even... dare I say it?... Rush Limbaugh's show.

"It could well be time to demand a national referendum on the GOP leadership."

This was much better articulated than the way I've been hammering away at the same subject since Fred! bowed out last spring, richard.

To put it bluntly: Fire.Them.All.

I'm for sweeping ALL the bums out of office in a thorough housecleaning. It'll never happen (and maybe wouldn't be a good thing in the long run), but it's sure nice to think about.
