Wise words for Leighton Smith

Leighton Smith would do well to read these wise words about the recent US elections. And before anyone whinges that a left-winger wrote them, they come from The American Conservative site?and true fiscal conservative Bruce Bartlett.

At least a few conservatives now recognize that Republicans suffer for epistemic closure. They were genuinely shocked at Romney?s loss because they ignored every poll not produced by a right-wing pollster such as Rasmussen or approved by right-wing pundits such as the perpetually wrong Dick Morris. Living in the Fox News cocoon, most Republicans had no clue that they were losing or that their ideas were both stupid and politically unpopular.

I’m looking forward to that lunch Leighton…
