Remember the ancient parable of the wise men? They are all blindfolded and asked to guess at the identity of the proverbial elephant in the middle of the room. Each feels a different part of the creature, coming up with a different answer...But in 2012, we're talking about the Republicans. Whether in victory or defeat, they are always in lock (goose?) step with each other, even if it's to take us straight over the (fiscal?) cliff.

I'm enjoying all of the GOP's post-election ruminations. Some are claiming that they've learned their lessons, leaping to reverse public positions on the racist policies they've touted for decades. Others are holding firm, claiming that they and Romney weren't conservative enough during the election, urging the party faithful to stick with...the same racist policies they've touted for decades.

Maybe the two factions will settle the matter through something competitive, like mud wrestling. Or better yet, some grand old elephant poop. That would make them the GOEP.
