Ghastly Outdated Party – NYTimes.com

I like that, Ghastly Outdated Party, especially as “ghastly” has a whiff of zombie about it, which is what these folks are, the walking dead. They aren’t going to nominate Ron Paul, who’s still proudly among the living. Wish he’d ditch them and go out with the Reform Party.

The contenders in the Hester Prynne primaries are tripping over one another trying to be the most radical, unreasonable and insane candidate they can be. They pounce on any traces of sanity in the other candidates — be it humanity toward women, compassion toward immigrants or the willingness to make the rich pay a nickel more in taxes — and try to destroy them with it.
