More

Marc Ambinder reports: "Fed up with neocons, theocons and convict cons, a group of former aides to Ronald Reagan want to reanimate the Republican Party by reviving the organization that brought Reagan to power," namely Citizens for the Republic, which "was funded with seed money from Reagan's failed 1976 presidential bid and supported his political travels over the next several years."

The head of the outfit will be Craig Shirley so this post-midterms op-ed he wrote explaining his view of where the GOP went wrong, slamming "steel tariffs, prescription drug benefits, a League of Nations mentality, the growth of government and harebrained spending, the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, the increasing regulation of political speech in the United States and endemic corruption."
