Say of the Day: Andrew Sullivan on GOP

I don’t disagree with Andrew Sullivan on the substance,  but the fait accompli  tone doesn’t become him.  Or any of us.

They are a religious and cultural identity party, primed to rally to anything their leaders say and question nothing. That’s why they’re so dangerous.

They can do anything and defend it – invade a country on false pretenses, grind the military into extreme danger, trash the Geneva Conventions, expand government at a record pace, threaten war with Iran and Russia – and still say with a straight face that they are the party of national security, fiscal restraint, foreign policy wisdom and military pride. It doesn’t matter what they do; these people believe in this cause because it is about God and America and their own identity. And when you have a major political party constructed like that, they can do anything. And they have.
