This poll released by the WaPo for some reason made me think of Solon. Why? Well, the result of this poll and the November election has made it pretty clear that, at least at the national level, the Republican party is in a bit of a no-win situation when it comes to public perception. So, it looks like it doesn't have any options when it comes to figuring out how to turn that tide. So, naturally, I thought of Solon the Athenian. Naturally. You'll see. Hopefully.
