Paul, I agree. I don’t see much in Newt’s grab bag of pandering proposals that will help much. But I think Tom Cole’s concerns are more significant. Even if you don’t think the special election losses mean much — and I do think that even they demonstrate superior Democratic candidate recruitment, if not a need to play defense in formerly safe districts — congressional Republicans are not well positioned going into the fall.
UPDATE: This kind of nonsense doesn’t help.
