The new Washington Post/ABC news poll has all sorts of intriguing numbers in it but when you are looking for clues as to where the two parties stand politically there is only one number to remember: 21.
That's the percent of people in the Post/ABC survey who identified themselves as Republicans, down from 25 percent in a late March poll and at the lowest ebb in this poll since the fall of 1983(!).
In that same poll, 35 percent self-identified as Democrats and 38 percent called them Independents.
Obviously, the Republicans need to purge more moderates and talk more about socialism, pizza and teleprompters. Oh, and Dick Cheney needs to be out front more telling us what a great thing torture is.
It's the only sane thing to do to save the GOP.
