Best thing to happen this week was Jim Demint, a marketing expert, going to the Heritage Group and putting some fire into the conservative message. We cant RE-EDUCATE an entire generation that was lost to govt schools, but we can communicate differently with them.
I agree he can really become a focal point for conservatism in a way that a wonk cannot. Also, he should be able to get Heritage into the states a little more deeply.
BTW: One of my fondest memories of being a DC reporter was a day I spent at Heritage. I walked in there (to interview one of their economics gurus) and in about 5 minutes I was trying to figure out a way to ask how I could go about getting a job there.
Why didn’t you go to work for them? How about now...ha?
