  •  Of course they are. Its what they ALWAYS do. (5+ / 0-)

    The only times it didn't take was Eisenhower and Nixon, who had the independent stature to win the nom w/o the 'rightwingy-est' and a very different party, when there were still moderate - let alone liberal - republicans.

    The really scary thing is that so much of what modern Thugs believe is utterly counter-factual.  Ds can't win every time.  There will be crises and gerrymanding and corruption and feckless media that wants 'to have a beer' with an alcoholic.  The real question is whether the Thug who wins then is at least as sane as Nixon and what it means that that's likely the best we can expect from them.
