An excerpt from Joe’s Politico column:
If Republicans defeat Mr. Obama next fall, they should not expect the flowering of a new conservative age in American politics.

Like an exterminator called in to kill the rats and roaches before a big holiday party, they may be the only ones who can come to the rescue to clean things up. But that doesn’t mean they should expect gratitude by an increasingly cranky public, or an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner after the job is done.
