BARBER: Republicans must ‘hang together’ …
At the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Ben Franklin famously warned: “We must, indeed, all hang together, or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”
Republicans, you’d better hang together. The grass roots aren’t exactly thrilled with the Grand Old Party. We’re just less thrilled with Democrats.
Yes, the GOP may well enjoy a tremendous victory come tomorrow, but make no mistake: It remains in a precarious position. Picture, if you will, an elephant standing on Ronald Reagan’s three-legged stool with a giant noose around its neck.
Better not to snap off any legs.
