Washington smart=American dumb
Vanessa Williams in a bikini has nothing to do with this post, but she is better looking than Stuart Rothenberg who has a lot to do with this post.
He is a smart man who can call elections with the best of him, which is why his dumb advice to the Republican Party. He wants Republicans to adopt every communistic policy the Democratic Party pursues in a vain effort to attract women and minorities -- meaning people other than white males.
His advice is pedestrian.
His argument is erroneous.
Wrote Stuart Rothenberg: "The Republican brand has been damaged for years, well before Trump made his mindless comments about Mexicans. His comments give Democrats more ammunition to use against the Republican Party, and that isn’t what the GOP needs. But Trump is not alone in his party in saying things that alienate voters, and his impact on the Republican Party will depend much more on his behavior over the next year than on his comments during the past few weeks."
Who controls both houses of Congress?
Who controls the most state legislatures?
Who controls the most Governor's Mansions?
Republicans win when they ignore Washington smarts, such as gun control and Obamacare.
They lose when they go along to get along.
Meanwhile, Vanessa Williams has married for the third time.
