    This isn't the first diary to predict the demise of the Republican party.

    Iseem to remember that in early 2009, it was looking pretty much impossible for Republicans to break out of their slump: we'd had a disastrous eight-year run with a Republican who was arguably the least popular president in American history, and for dessert, we got an economic crisis precipitated in large part by his government's lax regulatory oversight.

    But the undead Republican party came raging back like a zombie with an axe imperfectly embedded in its head. Instead of "Braaains!", we heard a rallying cry of "cuuut taxesss...!" Weirdly, the fact that we had recently undergone a historic election in which Republican policies had been soundly repudiated... well, that was lost to the general amnesia.

    So let's not assume for a minute that even the coming election cycle will automatically go to the Dems. I've heard that one before.
