EVERYBODY’S GOT ADVICE: Barbara Yaffe: Republicans need to take a page from Stephen Harper’s playbook. Well, to be fair, following that playbook requires that Ed Morrissey bring down the current government.

And I somehow missed this during the election: “Romney, in his campaign, was forever jabbering about protecting religious groups’ rights not to fund contraceptive pills for their employees, closing Planned Parenthood, restricting abortion.”

I believe, actually, that it was the Democrats who were jabbering about those subjects. Romney’s error was letting them set the narrative. Next time, the GOP will want less Karl Rove, more Lee Atwater.
