Dealing with the symptoms and not the root cause. AGAIN. Oh, pundits. Never change.

I've been mulling over this article:

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/201...

for the past week. I found it very interesting and not in a schadenfreude kinda way. If the right can learn from their mistakes, they will be very competitive in the coming elections. And if the left doesn't learn from the right's mistakes, they will be toast.

Echo chambers are dangerously seductive. They're nice. They're easy. You don't have to think. Remember what Mitt Romney was like four years ago? He was supposed to be the moderate to save us all. (See also: Bob Dole in 1988 but a lot of youse might be too young to remember.) If someone like Chris Christie can stay Chris Christie and not a pandering facsimile that gets nominated, the Democrats would need to nominate Christ himself to have a chance in 2016.
