I Agree with David Frum
A sign of a healthy organism is its ability to fight off germs. Similarly, a sign of a healthy organization is its ability to fight off people, blocs, and ideas that are harmful to its thriving. From this point of view, it is telling (and personally, as a moderate Republican, discouraging) that the GOP did not ward off Sarah Palin in 2008 and that it did ward off Jon Huntsman in 2012. I have more to say but that is all for this morning. PS This is not my analogy, nor is it new - I got this from David Frum over a year ago - but I thought it worth stating.
