You know who would be a completely fantastic leader for a hip, young, reinvented Republican party? My dad, that’s who. He sure knows better than to get snarky with people who have more Twitter followers than he does. He is also the undisputed black-belt grand master at losing gracefully to President Obama, which, as I mentioned, will be a key component of Republican strategy in 2012. Here’s a little juicy inside dish for you: my dad wanted to cancel his campaign and concede the race in, like, September of 2008… but that witch from Wasilla wouldn’t let him. It would have been a totally brilliant move, because it would have built up so much love and respect from reporters, and it would have showed moderates just how inclusive our new Republican Party can be. But You-Know-Who was too extreme and homophobic to listen to reason.
