« Let's ask Tom | Main | The NINETEENTH GOP debate »

January 26, 2012



"The result: a GOP campaign of ideological cleansing, a heaving of Tea-Party misfits, a distancing by what remains of the establishment from far-right media jackals. The predicament will present itself as a rather simple matter of political survival. Either the party divests itself of its extremism, or there will be no Republican Party of national scope."

I have been hearing about this fate for the GOP for at least a decade now. It's not that I don't agree, and yet the GOP still keep winning (2010) or when they lose they still have enough influence to frame the debate (Healthcare = death panels, socialism. How do they keep limping along when they should have been vanquished years ago?
