  •  It is time to sweep the GOP, (8+ / 0-)

    as currently configured, into the dustbin of history.

    The haters only comprise a significant minority or perhaps small minority of the Republican party. We must somehow convince economically conservative moderates - particularly women - that they do not in anyway belong in an alliance with the batshit crazies.

    The good news is the batshit crazies will do the heavy lifting for us....

    •  Electoral losses won't do that. (0+ / 0-)

      They will simply regroup and try again.

      If you want to break the back of the GOP's current incarnation, then let's get Hillary Clinton to run as a Republican.

      The only thing that will really change the GOP is a sea change, a massive shift in positions, loyalties, and priorities at least as big as the political shift that marked the end of the Dixiecrats.  You can't defeat a political party...  but you can take it over.

      How nice would it be for the GOP to represent the progressives, so that the Democrats can become the new benchmark of the political right in America?  We'll have to do it all over again in another hundred years, but at least we'll have some span of time in which the moneyed interests aren't in charge of both parties.

      •  You get Hil (0+ / 0-)

        to run as a Rethug.... I like all my parts where they are....
