I suppose if I had been thinking, I would have thrown down big money on "Ned completely avoids direct questions," but all lines are off.
To the point at hand:

You're right, there hasn't been anything of substance coming from RNC as a whole in quite awhile. At the end of the day, it doesn't do them any good to talk about any of their ideas in any detail, because they are all losing ideas, politically. So, at best, we have banal generalities. More commonly, we have personal attacks, culminating with the crap described in the first post.
And you know what, it's partially our (the electorate as a whole) fault. Because something 50-100 million of our fellow voters (see Flanders, Ned) not only think "Barry Hussein's mom was in a porno!!" is acceptable political discourse, they actually view it as more important than who might have a more sensible fiscal, domestic or foreign policy. There are some fucking idiots out there who have just as much of vote as you or I, who view this as the final straw in their "This is why I'm voting for Romney" thought process.
