I happened to click on the obituary of a local man who died at age 92 and was struck by the frank list of survivors: a daughter and “her companion”: another woman; a granddaughter with her own “companion”, sex indistinguishable by name. And here’s what I thought: I’d just read the obit of a hugely successful businessman, WWII veteran with a fine Greenwich family that has no problem openly acknowledging the various permutations of the New American Family. A party, like the Republicans, that attacks these kind of relationships is alienating an ever-growing portion of the public and is doomed. Or I hope so, anyway. Whereas, a party that truly restricts itself to core issues of fiscal conservatism, limited government and national defense could appeal to what I think is the new majority.
