Via the Jewish Athena, I come across this comment from Rick Moran, “People who don’t take responsibility for their own failures aren’t worth spit. And there seems to be a lot of them in the McCain campaign.”
He points out that McCain’s campaign pollster called Frank Luntz a “moron.” Gosh, sounds just like the kind of name-calling we hear from the sore losers of the Prop 8 battle.
While some on the McCain campaign seem to be trying to pass the buck, thankfully, those likely to run the next Republican campaigns do seem to be engaged in serious reflection and self-examination. We’re trying to grapple with why McCain lost–and what Republicans could have done to prevent it. Now, if only the leaders of gay organizations would try to consider why Prop 8 won — without calling their adversaries “haters.”
