Joseph Sabino Mistick asks the question “What's next for Republicans?” regarding the results of the presidential election and claims Republicans “have no room in their boat for anyone who thinks or looks differently than they do.”

As he would have us believe, Mistick and his “progressive” Democratic Party are clearly the party of tolerance, inclusion and understanding. Except, of course, for pro-life Americans, Christians, gun owners, hunters, the NRA, school-choice advocates, Fox News, people who question global warming, nonunion workers, Wal-Mart, conservative blacks, conservative women, the oil, gas, and tobacco industries, “rich” people (who aren't celebrities), the U.S. military, Israel, Wall Street executives, the Boy Scouts of America, the tea party, Chick-fil-A, wealthy business owners, those opposed to illegal immigration and anyone who advocates smaller government.

It seems Mistick's Democrats hypocritically have very little room in their own boat for anyone who thinks or looks differently than they do.
