Jeff Sessions to replace Arlen Specter on Senate Judiciary Committee

This is good news (from Reason Magazine). The Republican senators are putting the RINOs on the back burner and putting forward solid conservatives.

In my opinion, the RINOs have split the ability of the Republicans to have a coherent message. Rather than have a nuanced approach in order to have a larger tent, I prefer that each party be somewhat pure. This gives rise to multiple parties (or even better, no parties and just legislative caucuses). The Federalist Papers (No. 10) covers this topic rather cleanly, and is a recommended read. (Wikipedia has an excellent write-up, and here is a link to the text for No. 10.)

It is regrettable that we strayed from this wisdom so near the beginning of our Republic.
