If you haven't read today's editorial, I heartily recommend it.
If Republicans want to leave President Obama in office and return to the minority in both houses of Congress, they can follow the example of Gingrich, Paul and Brown. When an innovative idea is proposed, use it to your political advantage. First, attack it, preferably with a circular firing squad. Then run away and distance yourself from it. Then go out for drinks on Capitol Hill and ask your colleagues why nothing ever gets fixed in Washington.
