Someone gets it right about the Republicans

I was watching "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" tonight and I heard Jon's guest define the modern Republican party better than any I've ever heard. Mansour O. el-Kakhia, chair of the Political Science department at the University of Texas - San Antonio (that bastion of liberalism), said this about Republicans:

"Many, not all, but many, Republicans have the intellect of George [W.] Bush, the morality of [Silvio] Berlusconi, and the heart of [Vladimir] Putin."

I can't imagine a more on-point definition of the modern Republican party.
