This morning I sent an urgent message to the Chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party insisting that the party release a statement thusly:
I am the father of three daughters with a fourth daughter due in February. One of my greatest joys of late has been teaching my oldest daughter of twelve years about the sort of character and Christian ethic that befits a man worthy to call himself one day her husband and my son-in-law. I cannot and I will not, then, through some twisted logic attempt in the same breath to justify a vote for a man who is the quintessential opposite of everything I am teaching her to expect in a man. To put a finer point on it, I cannot bring myself to place a mark next to the name of a man whom I cannot trust to be alone in a room with my daughters.
Ronald Reagan once famously quipped about his switch from the Democrat to the Republican Party that he did not leave his party, for his party had already left him. Over the years I have often wondered what such a scenario might look like on this side of the partisan divide. Alas, I need not wonder any longer; the answer is plainly before us.
