Let Willard’s loss — and the primary debacles of Bachmann, Cain, Perry, Trump, Gingrich, Santorum, et al. — be a death knell to the far-too-large wing of the party that is anti-women’s rights, anti-homosexual, anti-minorities, anti-science, anti-evolution, anti-math, anti-education, anti-environment, anti-renewable energy, anti-non-Christians and climate change-denying. A wing that includes those who loudly and vehemently boast about balancing the books by killing PBS, NPR and Planned Parenthood (a combined microscopic fraction of the federal budget) and whose job proudly fails to include worrying about 47 percent of the American population (a group that is mostly the elderly, low-income and/or unemployed).

There are rational, intelligent, bipartisan people in the GOP who are not tied to absurdly staunch and archaic ideological views and whom aren’t afraid of life in the light of the 21st century.

Unfortunately, those Republicans aren’t currently welcome at the forefront of the party. Here’s to hoping they will be sooner rather than later.

As former Utah governor and GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman pondered while on stage with the carnival characters that comprised an early GOP debate: "In a nation of 315 million people … is this the best we can do?"
