The Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes, like Snoopy with goggles and scarf, braves the bursting flak of almost total rejection:
No doubt the media will insist that Republicans must change, must sprint to the center, must embrace social liberalism, must accept that America is destined to play a less dominant role in the world. All that is hogwash, which is why Republicans are likely to reject it. Their ideology is not a problem.
No, not at all, except that Americans last night sprinted non-ideologically to the center, embraced social liberalism, and accepted that America is destined to play a less dominant--meaning less neoconservatively bullying--role in the world.
But you go, Fred. Hang in there. Never say die. You're winning. Your message of far-right puritanism and neocon brutality is actually winning, even if only in the most inscrutable ways.
