Andrews: A rehab kit for Republicans

Show me a sore loser, and I'll show you a loser. This has rung in my ears since the election, as I listened to some fellow Republicans and conservatives weeping, whining and caterwauling. Not to mention griping, blaming and sulking. Enough, already. 

Political party animals who rebound from a loss with humility, humor and honesty. Happy warriors who take a setback in stride, undaunted yet undefensive. Those are the comrades I'll share a shell-shocked foxhole with. The authors of anguished obituaries for America and the GOP need not apply.

This country doesn't need, in other words, two liberal parties. Nor does it need a quixotic third party, a neo-Confederate secession craze, or a John Galt-dropout movement. It needs the Republican Party to continue our historically indispensable and resiliently effective role as the conservative party for these United States.
