Canary In A Coal Mine, Brooks & McCain

Let's be honest.

Yelling about "homo" marriage, fighting the abortion fight like it's 1980 and clamoring for a cement wall around the United States are not the planks of a political party that wants to stay relevant in the 21st century.

And political parties who back candidates who jump up and down screaming, "Let's bomb the sh*t out of Iran/North Korea/Venezuela/France and then drill for oil!" are headed for the ash bin of history as well.

And GreenMountainPolitics1 doesn't care how well some of "those" people did in 2002. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

This isn't a pro-Democratic Party post. Hardly.

This is a anti-Republican Party post. In the same way that a canary in a coal mine is anti-lack of oxygen.

And this birdie is chirping for change. Loud.

So Obama might be the "change" candidate of the Democratic Party.

And good for him. No Snark.

But John McCain is the "change" candidate of the Republican Party.

And the GOP can either get busy "changing". Or it can get busy picking out its spot in the Smithsonian.

But don't take our word for it. Just ask David Brooks.
