Wamp Encourages GOP to Keep Digging Their Hole

The Tennessee Republican wants to keep being all mavericky in a Palin vein:

Rep. Zach Wamp, R-Tenn., said this down cycle for Republicans may force the party to retrench around its core principles.

“If we lose, and I suspect we will lose more seats, it will allow us, through two election cycles, to burn out the impurities and burnish ourselves as the party of limited government,” he said.
Running hard to the right has obviously helped former moderate John McCain maintain a commanding lead over Obama in the polls, so of course the geniuses in the GOP are blueprinting more of the same in the future.

Have the failures of FEMA, the total absence of recession-preventing bank regulation, and bogged down military efforts in Muslim lands failed to teach Wamp that getting government right is more important than limiting what it can do?
