    Better Republicans make better Democrats, or, at least, makes them think hard and do a better job.

    Nothing like a strong opposition to make you sweat the details.

    The current GOP does not count as a strong opposition in any sense other than vote count.

      running an election against a blakc guy with a funny name brought out the worst element the party's been flirting with for decades.

      The election of said black man subsequently caused the entire GOP to lose their minds to pander to the loud, vocal, angry, racist wing of the party. The wing they used to be able to hide and control.

      oh well.

      I have no idea when sanity will return to the GOP. If ever. They've gone so far off the rails, I'm not sure there's cover for them to come back to sanity. Not now, perhaps not in 2016 even. I'm still not convinced someone like Huntsman could get elected in the GOP in 2016. Maybe 2020?

      I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

        but I have the same reservations about Democrats, so that ain't worth much.

        The GOP does seem to have lowered the bar a bit.  If Democrats were a bunch of hooting chimps for much of this century, the GOP seems poised to be howler monkeys.
