    They still have to get the sense that the lunatic fringe is just that: the lunatic fringe.

    At that point, they might get all "New Republican" that we'll just be seeing Lindsay Graham, and others who tout their ability to work with Democrats.

    •  They'll have to, demographics are forcing it (1+ / 0-)

      I mean did the Birch Society seriously think this day wasn't coming eventually?

        That is exactly what I've been pondering. After this election cycle I think we are going to see some big changes in the GOP. They will be forced to adopt a much more centrist platform all the way down the line. The demographics and changing social attitudes in this country demand it. And when the state of Texas goes "swing" or Blue, look out. The GOP, in its current state, will not win another Presidential election. And they know it.

        In 2016 watch out for the rise of candidates like Huntsman, Pawlenty, and Jeb Bush.
