The Easter Bunny and Moderate Republicans

(Invitation to a Dialogue: Moderate Republicans)

Where is this Republican, champion of the poor, protector of women's rights, advocate for sanity in gun legislation, keeper of the planet, supporter of immigrants, believer in compromise? Certainly not in the halls of Congress or on the stage at the Republican debates.

Ms. McGirr paints a fictional character no more real to me than Santa or the Easter Bunny. She may cite statistics of those who profess moderation but they are like the leatherback turtle in today's political arena: an endangered species that most of us never see, in grave danger of extinction.
