Rep. Tom Davis Isn’t Making Any Sense

I couldn’t help but notice this article in today’s Washington Post:

“Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), chairman of the Government Reform Committee, said the desire of GOP conservatives to see a newly constituted Supreme Court eventually overturn Roe v. Wade could produce a political backlash, particularly in the suburbs. "It would be a sea change in suburban voting patterns," Davis said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.”

So let me get this straight: Conservatives can’t win because winning would cause a backlash???

Of course, this comment didn’t come out of nowhere.  What is left unstated is that Kilgore’s recent loss (particularly in the suburbs) is being used by moderates to push for “moderation” in the GOP.  I think I predicted this last week.
