Jim Bowden's contribution this month is Virginia Republicans' Challenge in 2009 as he ponders the past and future of the Republican Party:

Run as conservatives. Repent for the past by running for an honest conservative future: spend less, tax less, fix transportation and let the market lead us to energy independence.
