When I was in high school we used to joke that being conservative meant a lack of originality and doing the same tired things over and over again.
Judging by the way the Republican Party has been operating, no doubt the GOP falls under our definition of conservative.
Most recently, GOP Chairman Michael Steele said the following while describing President Barack Obama:
“He’s young. He’s cool. He’s hip … he’s got all the qualities America likes in a celebrity, so of course he’s going to be popular.” … But “this is not American Idol. This is serious … and we are going to take them on.”
Last year, John McCain ran some ads during his failed presidential campaign where he called Obama ‘a celebrity.’
How did that work out for McCain?

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. – Albert Einstein.
So why would Steele repeat the point from McCain’s ads?
I can only guess that Republicans are both Conservative AND Insane.
