Gingrich’s vision for Republicans — vote for Democrats

In an interview in the Washington Times, Newt Gingrich lays out his vision for conservatives and Republicans. He calls it “thinking outside the party-label box”.

What Gingrich is saying is that the Republican brand is so damaged, that Republicans must promote conservative Democrats (!)

I would urge conservatives in California to find a Democrat to run in every Assembly and Senate seat in California that can’t be contested by Republicans and then to run a Republican in every seat they could possibly win, and then have an overt goal of creating a bipartisan conservative coalition. I’d do the same thing nationally.

There may be some method to Gingrich’s madness. If conservatives manage to do to the Democratic party what they did to the Republican party during the Bush administration, then that would leave the field open so that the Republicans can just go back to being the party owned by multinational corporations and bankers.

    That almost makes some sense… I’m quite concerned by these so called “conserva-dems” actually. We talk about having 60 Democrats in the Senate. But does someone like Ben Nelson really count as a Democrat? Only barely. How are we supposed to get real health care reform (plus public option) passed with so many of these Rupublican-lite Democrats?
