Morning Fix: The Head, Heart and Gut of the GOP

The Republicans Vacuum Problem

Cable television has been all over the story and the Democratic National Committee got in on the act -- sending out a release touting the poll with the headline "'Nuff Said" and featuring an MSNBC screen shot of Limbaugh, Cheney as well as Sen.

The victory by moderate state Sen. Creigh Deeds (D) last night in Virginia coupled with the release of a new poll in New Jersey that shows former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie (R) leading Gov.
