That's this post, basically, just a public service announcement from Dean Chambers.

When leaders like Rand Paul, who wrote a very moderate sensible federal budget that was called extreme by those inside the beltway, or Dr. Ben Carsonwho suggested a simple but brilliant health care reform that the politicians think is extreme, rise and suggest common-sense ideas, the insiders say those ideas are naive, unrealistic, simplistic and extreme. They condemned Ronald Reagan in the same way and he clearly was the best president of our life times.

Chambers did a mea culpa for completely missing the election result because he refused to believe that the poll samples were accurate reflections of the real, Republican-skewing country we live in. It's just good to see the "no, no, always further to the right" theory surviving despite the efforts of the RNC.
