The Republicans are apparently starting another "Contract with America." Except this time they can't decide whether they're going to come out with the ideas or look to the American people for ideas. The National Council for a New America is an all-star panel of experts comprised of the above mentioned dignitaries, as well as John McCain and Tim Pawlenty.
Though this is clearly a desperate move to make people feel better about Republicans, they're billing it as a nonpartisan effort.
The restaurant, Pie-Tanza on Harrison St., was filled to capacity so I couldn't come in to ask questions. There was a group of protesters in the parking lot trying to bring attention to the immigration issue. Unfortunately for them, Johnny Mac wasn't there today.
One sign read, "MCCAIN = AMNESTY = DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA." Guess he had it left over from last year.
