"Let's play grown-up." When I was a child, that's what we said when we ran out of things to do like playing potsie or throwing rocks in the vacant lot. You'd go in and take your father's hat and your mother's purse and walk around saying, "Would you like tea?" In retrospect we weren't imitating our parents but parents on TV, who wore pearls and suits. But the point is we amused ourselves trying to be little adults.And that's what the GOP should do right now: play grown-up.
Y'all read that the same way I do, right? That Peggy Noonan realizes that the Republican Party right now is made up of a bunch of children, and that the best they can do in terms of maturity is to "play" grown-up?
Suddenly I'm having flashbacks to this. Co-starring Rush Limbaugh as the Gorgon!
