Fighting dirty to betray their principles

Medicare round-up: David Gratzer summarizes the problems with the bill. David Brooks fleshes out the context of how power has corrupted the Republicans. (Lord Action shown right once again.) Deroy Murdock lists the Republican congressmen and senators who defied the establishment and voted against this mess.

If there's a moral to this story it's that in 2008 Republicans need to nominate a more anti-government candidate. Only Nixon could go to China and only Republicans can create new entitlements nowadays. Better to lose the general election in 2008 than to enact the Democrat's agenda for them.
