The limits of tech-savvy politicking

An interesting piece at the NY Times magazine: "Can the Republicans Be Saved from Obsolescence?" by Robert Draper (found via Justin Green's gloss on it here). My takeaway from it is to wonder whether the extremely important subject on which the young GOPers in the piece are focused--getting the party to be more digital-savvy in its campaigning--which I did mention is extremely important?--could also be a distraction from some other, not exactly unimportant, business of rethinking policy positions.

Rethink. And start with climate change. All the Reddit sophistication in the world won't make up for putting your head in the sand on that issue.
