    No, I don't think the Republicans are listening, either. In fact I'm counting on it.

    We saw them firmly embrace their status as the party of that dwindling minority formed by not just white people, but the bitter elderly wing of the Southern white male population. With enough tricks and enough money and enough outsiders imagining themselves as insiders, maybe they could have pulled it off for another couple cycles.

    But, they went too far. They were too open about hating women and treating them as male property. They were too open about disenfranchising those who would exercise power against them. They were too open about the way they play one sliver of working class Americans against another to clear the way for the corporations and the super-wealthy.

    They were too open about not only appealing to their base, but rejecting all others. And, they secured their destiny as a dwindling minority party, the last sorry remnant of the old Confederacy.

    Why is there a Confederate Flag flying in Afghanistan?
