"I don't think this is the issue that it once was.

Or, as fellow Republican strategist Mark McKinnon puts it: "The wedge has lost its edge."

One notes, with bitter amusement, the irony that the current "economic issues" demanding everyone's attention are the result of disastrous economic policy ushered in by conservatives who were voted in on the promise to protect Real Americans from kissing boys, the exaggerated threat of whose alleged insidiousness was used to distract attention away from the truly grave enactment of conservative governance.
