Scoppe: How the sensible center can save itself

AN INCREASINGLY vocal subset of voters who consider compromise — the essential ingredient to any enterprise involving human beings — a capital offense. A Legislature that fiddles at nullification and nonsensical gun laws while South Carolina is burned by a dysfunctional government overseen by elected officials determined to preserve their corruption-enabling ethics law. A Theatre de l’Absurde production starring a U.S. senator who could easily win a general election, no matter who his opponent, being seriously challenged in his party primary by obscure opponents who can most charitably be called political outliers.
