The current problems with the Republican Party can truly be viewed in a capsule by listening to This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. This is from the promo.
On our roundtable: Democratic strategist James Carville, Republican strategist Liz Cheney, former McCain campaign adviser Steve Schmidt, The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel and ABC News' George Will join me to debate the week's politics and the future of the Republican Party.
So we have Liz Cheney as a stand in for her husband, Dick and James Carville to provide the humorous one-liners.
More to the point, I can not imagine any two representatives of the main stream media who are more out of touch with their respective realities than George Will and Katrina vanden Heuvel. Will, in particular, has such thick ideological lenses that his vision of the world is totally distorted. Case in point, his positions regarding climate change. If you want to know what is wrong with Republican Party? They listen to people like George Will. I have written to ABC News that I will not watch This Week for any session where Will is part of the program.
