    Fischer, Perkins, Reed, Falwell, and especially FoxNews have all knowingly and intentionally helped create the modern Republican base voter: an incoherent but nonetheless combustible mix of Biblical literalist Christianism, militantly anti-science ignorance, xenophobic American Exceptionalist jingoism, reactionary Gilded Age capitalism, racial and ethnic hostility, homophobia, and paranoia. The cumulative effect is sociopathy on a mass scale.

    With a base like that, there is literally no chance whatsoever of truly changing the party. The more moderate and enlightened Republican leaders and commentators can pontificate all they want, but they are completely powerless and therefore irrelevant in the GOP. Unfortunately, this means several decades of partisan strife lie ahead.
