Sad, But Probably True

Says Jeffrey Wells over at the excellent Hollywood Elsewhere blog:
Richard Nixon Returns to Earth 
...with the same mind and spirit and perspective that he had before he died in the '90s but in the body of a go-getter Congressman from Southern California, and he'd probably have a tough time getting re-elected because he'd be considered too moderate, too thoughtful, too practical. He'd be regarded as a sleepy-centrist go-along Republican who doesn't get the ideological fever of the Tea Party or the debt-ceiling shutdown or any of the things that Eric Cantor or Michelle Bachmann believe in. He could almost be a centrist Democrat by today's standards.
Just look at the debt ceiling fiasco-in-progress and tell me he's wrong.
