We got nothin'

"I would say you can't beat something with nothing. The other side has something. I don't like it, but they have it." - Jeb Bush, speaking at the kick-off rally of the National Council for a New America, 5/2/09

Ah, Jeb, you speak the truth, buddy. You put together three of the biggest namesin the GOP that aren't Sarah or Rush - Mitt Romney, Eric Cantor, and Jeb Bush - for the first outreach of your brand spankin' new Republican Revitalizing Machine and you draw a crowd that FOX News estimates at seventy-five. On a Saturday afternoon. In Arlington, just across the bridge from Georgetown. At a popular pizza joint. At lunch time.

Just a wild guess here, but an educated one since I know the neighborhood - I'm betting that the average crowd at the
Pie-Tanza Restaurant at that time on a nice Saturday would be about 75. Give or take a couple washed-up politicians.

We're the new GOP - we got nothin'.
