On the way to work this afternoon, I climbed aboard the bus and listened to the BBC News which was broadcast by our local public radio station. I caught the end of an interview with someone from The New York Post who said something that left my mouth agape. Sorry, I didn't catch the person's name. I didn't hear the full question that was asked, but I'm guessing that it was something about whether or not the Republican party has problems of its own. The interviewee replied that the "centrists" are the ones in control of the party, but are being threatened by the likes of Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee who are trying to pull the party more to the left. Excuse me? Palin and Huckaby are the liberals of the Republican party??? I hope at least one of you heard the same interview, because I really want to be sure that I heard what I thought was said. If there is a view that the current version of the Republican party are centrists then it makes those who previously identified themselves as "moderate Republicans" moderately liberal at the very least. Yes, I realize this may be the rantings of a single Fox News flunkie and thus, shouldn't be taken too seriously. But still, if people like Rep. Cantor, and John Boehner are considered to be party moderates, where does that leave "the old guard moderates" of the Republican party?
