    And while I'm sure that individual Repubs are capable of growing past this undeveloped stage, I'm not sure that the GOP, or, more accurately, the right, ever can, since one of its reasons for being is to be a place for people like this to find one another and organize. There will always be a far right movement where people stuck in that 4-6 year old level of emotional development can find one another and commiserate and collaborate against people and entities they imagine to be their enemies (and whose emotional retardation some will inevitably exploit for power and profit). Even as some of these people finally grow up and leave the fold, they will be replaced by others. So long as there's enough of such types out there, there will be a far right. All we can do is contain, not destroy it, and keep it from doing too much harm.
