    motion death of a party and the damage it is inflicting on its way out of power and relevance.  In the textbooks of the future it will all be 20/20 and appear in just a few paragraphs, but we're living it.  The demise of the Whig party in the 1840's is a great analog and it took a civil war and the deaths of 600,000 Americans and the final admission that slavery should not and could not continue.  The Whigs never stood a chance, just as the Federalists never stood a chance, and ultimately the Republicans do not, either.

    Pity there is no fast-forward button.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
