  •  I think the worsening of the GOP is related (7+ / 0-)

    Northern Republicans were quite acutely aware that the South had lost, but the Southern Strategy pushed them out of the party.  

    As the party has become more and more Southern, it has become more and more extreme, in a self-feeding cycle: The more extreme it gets, the more it drives away moderates, leaving only the most extreme, and so on.

      Swinging to get the Fundamentalists is doing damage in the northeast, west, and southwest, and that covers a large chunk of population.

      2010 looks like the high-water point for nutcases in the House.  I can't see it getting any worse than that.

      If the Senate weren't two per state and had more of a population distribution equality, the Republican party would have already imploded.

        If you're wrong, we are so seriously screwed it's not even funny.
