The Republicans can't help themselves. Their weekend townhall meeting (which took place inside what appeared to be an old Chi Chi's franchise) was composed of a guy with the most unpopular last name in recent political history, and the guy who lost the Republican nomination by a gazillion delegates. And now they're consulting three former Bushies:
Republicans looking to recover from Bush-era defeats are turning to an unlikely source for advice: top aides to former President George W. Bush.
Former White House press secretary Dana Perino, former Bush counselor Ed Gillespie and former White House deputy press secretary Tony Fratto are among those set to provide words of wisdom to House Republican press secretaries at their annual workshop this Friday.
This would be similar to, after the 2004 election, all of us gathering around to absorb the sage wisdom of Bob Shrum.
