Our political Quote of the Day comes from former Bush administration Secretary of State Colin Powell, who has an answer to former Vice President Dick Cheney and talk show host Rush Limbaugh who basically said there’s no room for his kind of moderate Republican in the GOP and that he should take a hike, if he hasn’t already done so:

Before some 1,500 business leaders in Boston, as well as Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen, the retired general and former secretary of state spoke openly of the dispute roiling the Grand Old Party after election setbacks and polls putting its popularity at roughly one of five Americans.

“Rush Limbaugh says, ‘Get out of the Republican Party.’ Dick Cheney says, ‘He’s already out.’ I may be out of their version of the Republican Party, but there’s another version of the Republican Party waiting to emerge once again,” Powell told the crowd.

May we say the word: “Ditto”?
