Specter, Graham, RINOs, and the sweet spot that's just right of center

It's old news, but we read a great bit of insight into how our GOP is blowing itself up with its purging of those who disagree.

Lindsey Graham, GOP stalwart for 100 or so years, upon learning of Arlen Specter's defection to the light side (and we mean that in terms of gravity and gravitas, not photons) opined "If we pursue a party that has no place for someone who agrees with me 70 percent of the time...then we are going to keep losing."

Until the GOP stops pandering to its lunatic fringe and realizes that its arch conservative silliness is off-putting to the majority of Americans, we'll have no one to blame but ourselves for the Democrat majority in the House and Senate and their ownership of the White House.

When will pols realize that just right of dead center is where the sweet spot for the country lies?
